Semya pulihora



I tried making this breakfast variety with semya,just like noodles boiling them first in water and adding the seasoning to it. I felt this tasted great than the regular semya upma.Try this way and enjoy! 


  1. Semya/Vermicelli – 2cups
  2. Green chillies – 3
  3. Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp
  4. Cashews/Groundnuts – 1/2tsp
  5. Lemon juice – 2tsp
  6. Salt to taste
  7. Oil – 2tsp
  8. Water – 2cups

 For seasoning  :

  1. Chana dal – 1tsp
  2. Urad dal – 1tsp
  3. Mustard seeds – 1/2 tsp
  4. Curry leaves – few


  • First boil the semya in 2cups of water until slightly cooked.
  • Heat oil in a pan add the seasoning ingredients,groundnuts/cashews,green chillies and turmeric powder.
  • To this add the cooked semya,salt and mix well and cook for 5min.
  • Add lemon juice before serving.
