Dry roast the vermicelli on medium heat till it turns light golden in color, stirring continuously.
Once done, boil them for 5 minutes, drain and keep aside.
Wash and cut the veggies in julienne or cubes. Parboil the veggies in microwave for 5 minutes.
I used carrots, peas, beans, peppers and corn, these are readily available in my kitchen.
Heat oil in a pan on medium heat. Once hot, add mustard seeds and curry leaves.
Add green chilies, ginger and onion, saute for 2-3 minutes.
Add the veggies and mix well.
Now sprinkle the salt, turmeric powder, garam masala and lemon juice, Cover and let them cook for 2 minutes.
Add roasted and boiled vermicelli and mix gently.
After 2 minutes switch off the heat and allow it to sit covered for another 5-6 minutes.
Garnish with coriander, peanuts and bhujia, serve the vermicelli hot.
This dish is best served for breakfast or evening snack.
