Vegetable Semiya

I love semiya!! Who woundn't right!! I tried different types.But nothing ever tasted good for me or for my hubby.When i was in india my MIL made this simple vegetable semiya which was so good and tasty. Its has loads of vegetables.Its easy too.So here comes the recipe..

Semiya:2 cups
Water-4 cups
Cabbage:2 handful
Carrot: 1
Beans-1/2 cup
Small potato:1
Capsicum:1/2 cup
peas:1/2 cup
Turmeric powder-1/2 tbsp
sambar powder:1tbsp
salt: as per taste
Green chilli: as per taste(I added 1)
Coriander leaves: for garnish

Jeera and Mustart leaves with curry leaves for tampering.

Chop all the veggies and in a bowl with little water MW them for 5mins.Make sure the veggies are boiled or keep them again for 1 or 2 mins.
In a kadai add 1tbsp of oil and fry the semiya till it turns brown.Keep on frying or else it will burn.
Take the semiya out and add a little oil and tamper them with jeera and mustard leaves.
When it crackle add the curry leaves and add the veggies right away.Add the turmeric powder and salt.
Add 4 cups of water and close with a lid.When it start to boil adjust the salt and add the semiya with sambar powder.
Keep on stirring till all the water is absorbed by semiya.
Garnish it with coriander leaves.
Add 1tbsp ghee for extra flavor.

This same method goes well with Rava/Sooji.
