Print Friendly and PDF
Yum
I had this vermicelli @ my mom’s place when i was pregnant.We generally prepare semiya/vermicelli made from maida/Wheat..This one is a healthy replacement..Taste wise no compromise too,, Very easy to make and weight watchers should include this in their diet..Filling one..The sweet version is for kids..I am sure they will like it..:)

 FOR SWEET VERSION:
  • Ragi vermicelli – 100gms (I used ANIL )

  • Cardamom – 2 pods (Powdered)
  • Grated coconut – 1 tbsp
Method:
  1. Soak ragi vermicelli in plain water for 3 mins with little salt ..Don’t soak more than 3 mins because it will become gooey.
  2. Drain the water completely and steam cook the vermicelli using idly plates..
  3. Cook for 5-7 mins.Remove and let it cool.
  4. Then take the cooled vermicelli in a bowl and add the remaining ingredients…

  5. Hey Chitra, It was good to read about you & your dreams..in btn ragi vermicelli has come out good..I dont know if i get it here in the US...will have to check..You know the biggest advantage to live in India is that you afford a house servant who can take care of everything...here we cant even think to afford one..0o0o0ffff.."Glorious unpaid servants of the house"..does anyone agree ???

  7. You are welcome Chitra!
    You deserve it.
    Nice to know more abt you.
    I am also a hardcore Raja fan. He is the God of music. As for as living in US is concerned, it will def happen in the near future. Good luck dear. One thing i liked is you said 1 or 2 yrs and not settle here. Even I wish to come back to my fav India/ Chennai after sometime. You def miss a lot of things here but still as you said living here for sometime is a gr8 exp. Managing everything by urself is nice. But the house maid thing is true like anonymous said :D

  42. Ragi vermicelli is a healthy version and also a tasty one for those who do not like the usual one made from powder.

    Other than Anil, Manna brand is also available in Singapore.
