Semiya Upma with mint leaves

Upma  is a easy and tasty breakfast or tiffin, many kids don't like upma’s , fussing, crying and many types of acting they do to avoid eating upma. Mint leaves always make any dish attractive and improve the taste. We all used to add mint leaves in biriyani, curries and many other gravies. But I added this in the upma which I made yesterday for my breakfast it was tasty and it was looking attractive also. So it made my daughter feel that some masala semiya  is being prepared and she tried to come near it and tasted it. Hope u all will like it.

Ingredients
Vermicelli - 1 cup (roasted in oil/ghee)
Onion – ¼ cup (finely chopped)
Green chili – 1 no (finely chopped)
Mint leaves - 3tbsp (chopped)
Coriander leaves – 2 tbsp (chopped)
Salt to taste
Oil for seasoning
SEASONING
Mustard seeds – ¼ tsp
Urad dhal – ¼ tsp
A pinch  of garam masala.
Method
Take a wide mouth pan/ non stick pan suits well.  Add oil and splutter mustard / urad dhal. Add onion and green chilli sauté it well till onion changes its colour. Now add the mint leaves and coriander leaves with a pinch of garam masala.
Fry well, Now add the roasted vermicelli / semiya.  Mix well  and add  the required amont of water. Close the pan and cook in sim. Main thing is to cook the semiya till it is cooked well.  Switch off the flame and serve hot with sugar or pickle.
