Spicy Vermicelli special

When you feel like preparing a light meal for dinner this is just the right one to serve. Will do good for breakfast or a Sunday brunch too! The green chilli spice that cuts through the bland strands of vermicelli is a tasty blend for a light and happy meal. You may add more veggies to the vermicelli and consider reducing the spice when serving this for kids.


  • 200-250 gm Vermicelli
  • Water 3 cups
  • 3-4 pods of Garlic
  • Onions 1 large
  • 3-4 Green chillies
  • Capsicum/green bell pepper
  • Green peas ½ cup
  • Beans 2-3
  • Soya sauce ½ tsp
  • Red or Green chilli sauce – ½ tsp
  • White vinegar 1 tsp
  • Ghee
  • Salt


  • In a pan heat ghee and roast the vermicelli, till it turns brownish in colour. (If vermicelli is already roasted skip this step).
  • Bring water to boil, then tip in the vermicelli and cook on low flame stirring continuously. When done drain and run under cold water.
  • Heat oil in pan and sauté onions and green chillies. When onions turn brownish put in the vegetables and fry well. Cover with lid to cook for few minutes.

Green Tip: If you want the fresh and green look of the peas in the dish then boil them separately and add it in the second last step.
