For 2 persons:
1 cup vermicelli
1 cup cut asparagus or greens beans
1/2 cup frozen peas
1/2 spoon turmeric
1/2 spoon sambar powder
1/2 spoon coriander powder
2 teaspoon or more of lemon juice
pinch of mustard and urad dal
2 table spoon oil
pinch of asofetida
Bring 4 cups of water to boil. Boil vermicelli for 4 minutes
rinse with cold water...keep aside
Take a wide pan.
add mustard, urad dal, asofetida
when mustard splutters add asparagus and saute for 2minutes. Now add peas, turmeric, sambar powder, coriander powder
Keep a lid on for say 4-5 minutes
Once the veggies are tender, add drained vermicelli.
Mix everything. Add lemon juice.
Keep in flame for a minute or 2 remove and server hot or cold.
I added a teaspoon of Priya nallakaram to give a zing. This is a powder made of dried tamarind and red chillies available in all indian stores.
You can do this or just bump up sambar powder to 1 teaspoon
You can add some curry leaves when sauteing vegetables it will give a good taste
I had asparagus and peas. You can use any vegetable combination you want.
Cauliflower and peas would be good. Potato and spring onions would be good.
beans and potatoes also would be good.
