Upma or Uppuma or Uppittu is a common South Indian and Sri Lankan Tamil breakfast dish. Various seasonings and/or vegetables are often added during the cooking, depending on individual preferences.The most common form of upma is made from semolina ( rava or suji). Today I am sharing another most loved breakfast and delicious type of upma made with seviyan or vermicelli. This is easy and quick to make delicious breakfast. Try my version of cheesy yummy vermicelli upma. Hope you all will love it.

When the vermicelli is done drain the water and spread it in a flat dish. Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seed, cumin and red chilly. When the mustard seed start to splutter then add curry leaves and ginger garlic and onion and coconut.
