A Soft and Delicious Meal That Easily Fits in a Lunch Box

I made rice sevai (vermicelli) upma for today's breakfast. This dish gives you the freedom to add your own masala options. I wanted to have a simple breakfast in the morning. Hence, I skipped vegetables here just for a change.

This upma came out smooth, soft, and delicious. It had a tempting aroma of lemon, coconut, roasted peanuts, and green chilies. You can also add par-boiled vegetables to this. Trust me, this upma was great even without that!

I used a branded rice vermicelli packet to make this dish. I followed the instructions and got perfect vermicelli. Unlike wheat vermicelli upma, rice sevai upma is not sticky. You don't need any side dish to eat it with.

Let's now find out in detail how to make rice sevai upma.
