Vermicelli Vegetable Pulao/Semiya Pulao

One of the easiest dish you can dish out quickly is this semiya pulao aka vermicelli pulao, if you have all the ingredients at home, you can prepare this easy breezy one pot meal within less time. This pulao makes an excellent lunch if served along with some deep fried beauties and raita. A quick dish to prepare and pack earlier in the morning to carry for lunch. Semiya aka vermicelli are really handy, they are as much as like semolina aka rava. If you have a packet of vermicelli at home, you can dish out couple of delicious,simple and quick dishes out of it. Obviously vermicelli is a life saver. From a simple starter to a delicious kheer, you can make different dishes out of them. My today's post is an excellent pulao with couple of vegetables and vermicelli. Actually i was planning to make a semiya upma with vegetables for our dinner, but i skipped it as we went out for dinner. The next day without any fail, i dished out this pulao for our lunch.
