Semiya with a twist

My mom's special semiya is a quick and simple recipe that is delicious. The sour-tangy taste of lemon and garam masala flavor make this dish really mouth-watering.

Yield: 3 servings

  • 2 cups Semiya/Vermicelli

  • 2 tbsp Oil

  • 1/4 tsp Mustard seeds

  • 1/4 tsp Cumin seeds

  • 4-5 Green chilies, slit

  • 4-5 Dry Red chilies

  • 1 tsp Chana dal

  • 1 sprig Curry leaves

  • 1/2 tsp Garam masala powder
