"Color Splashed -Veggie Delight Vermicelli Upma"

Vermicelli Upma has been my Fav since childhood....i like just dote on this one(a famous south indian speciality)...;) when it came to introducing it to my daughter i was a bit nervous...!! " Will she like it as much as i do"[ Pssst: Makes life simpler when majority at home loves one dish..;) hope hubby is not reading this line..Whooops...... i spilled the beans;)..].
She had proved me wrong on several occasions and all through everyone would say...she follows her dad...Mmmmarrrghhh...the amount of jealousy would be like tones of oil added to a forest which is already burning mad...!!(Kidding...i'm happy she takes after him on most things since he's a picky but healthy eater..!!).
Well on this one she surprised me...was i glad to see her eat it happily...Oh you bet i am...i loaded it with veggies to make it look more appealing to her lil twinkling eyes...and as the twinkled i had myself all sparkling & beaming with utmost happiness and joy...!!
A very simple recipe, and healthy too...since vermicelli comes from wheat plus to top the veggies..make the dish look really colorful and inviting...hope this helps most of you...let's get moving..;).
I'm sure you and your kids will love this one...[psst: i always add potatoes & broccoli since they are my personal fav...but i haven't added them in this recipe since many don't like them much, however.., you can add any veggies your kids like of your choice;)].
