Semiyaan / Vermicelli with Veggies
Vermicelli is a healthy alternative to the ready-to-cook noodles available in the market. Also, because it takes less time to cook, this dish is a hit with mommies. Load the dish with veggies of your choice, and it will turn out to be a feast for the eyes while being easy on the stomach. Feel free to jazz things up by adding a handful of roasted nuts like cashews or a tablespoon of grated coconut over the semiyaan before serving, and watch your kids come back for seconds.
