Sharing a recipe which is a favourite at home. I have learnt this recipe from my mom. When I make these veg sevai upma, I always use rice vermicelli. Though you can even use whole wheat or semolina (sooji) vermicelli for this upma recipe.

The vegetable sevai upma tastes delicious with a nice soft texture of the rice vermicelli which compliments the texture & the taste of the veggies and the crunchy taste coming from the cashews. Adding cashews are optional, You can also add roasted peanuts instead of cashews. i have already shared a plain version of Rice sevia upma.

As is the case with any mix veggie dish, you can add your choice of veggies. I have here used carrots, french beans, potatoes, green peas and capsicum.

It can be served as a breakfast or as a quick snack. You can eat it at room temperature or have it warm. Tastes good either way.
