Sev Pulao / Vermicelli Pulao

As for sev / vermicelli , I have always known them to be into the milk and then simmered with some sugar and condensed milk to be made into a blissfully tasty Sevai Kheer / Simayer Payesh / vermicelli kheer. But then I saw recipes with sev / vermicelli , salty recipes, like sev upma and this Sev Pulao. And some lovely options opened up before me!! Lovely isn’t it!!

I make this sev pulao / vermicelli pulao when I like to have a heavy breakfast and sometimes I make it for lunch when I want to have a light meal. This is also a good lunchbox idea!! I was in rather short of “Chanachur”, or otherwise it would have been a good combo to have with. Soft and crunchy...at the same time!!

Meanwhile my husband’s colleague has brought us a huge box of Indian sweets from India. They are a mixture of almost everything I love, from Laddu to Kaju Katli to Amriti!! Simply delish!! So while my husband was busy shaving this evening, I got myself laddus and kaju katlis...but I think he noticed!! But really who cares??? I am eating laddu after almost a year and I don't feel guilty!!

Sev Pulao / Vermicelli Pulao
Serves 4

indian simple breakfast recipe vermicelli pulao recipe with step by step pictures

Ingredients:
1 and ½ cup sev
½ inch stick of ginger - minced
A handful of green peas
A handful of small florets of cauliflower
A handful of baby carrots / 1 medium carrot – peeled and chopped
A handful of sweet corn
A handful of roasted – unsalted peanuts
A handful of raisins – golden / brown
A handful of fresh coriander leaves – chopped
1 tsp garam masala powder
1 medium cinnamon stick
3 green cardamoms
3 cloves
2 tsp + 1 tbsp ghee
A pinch of salt
1 tbsp sugar

Method:
Heat 2 tsp ghee in a pan / kadai / dutch oven, and add the raw sev in it.
Saute on low flame continuously for a minute or two or until the sev gets lightly golden in colour.
Once done, transfer all the sev in a separate bowl and keep aside.
In the same cooking vessel, heat the remaining ghee and add in the whole cinnamon stick, green cardamoms and clove.
Lightly sauté for half a minute or until the ghee becomes aromatic and then add all the veggies and minced ginger into them.
Sprinkle some salt over them and cook for 3-4 minutes or until they are little cooked and coloured from outside.
Now add the sugar and add 3 cups of water (the amount of water should be double the amount of sev / vermicelli ). Taste and check for the salt and sugar in the water. The pulao should be a little sweet with a little saltiness.
Let the water come to a boil and then add the roasted vermicelli into the water.
Add the garam masala powder, cashew nuts and raisins into them.
Give a good stir and put cover.
Cook covered for 6-7 minutes or until all the water is completely evaporated and the sev / vermicelli is completely cooked and soft.

Sprinkle the chopped coriander leaves over them and put off the flame.
