 Hi friends, you must have eaten a sweet vermicelli many times as a dessert but this spicy one is I'm sure going to be yours as well as your kids favourite. I have made this dish through the years and through postings on several occasions on many snack party and on birthday's and it never went unnoticed.....uneaten.

 Ingredients -

Vermicelli - 250 g
Onions thinly sliced - 2 medium size
Green chillies minced - 2
Tomatoes chopped - 2 small
Tomato sauce - 2 tbsp
Green peas boiled - 1/2 cup
French beans finely chopped - 2 tbsp
Capsicum cut in small stripes - 1 whole
Carrot chopped - 1 small
Ginger minced - 1 tsp
Green chillies minced -2

Cumin powder - 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
Red chilli powder - 1/2 tsp

Salt - to taste + 1/2 tsp

Method -

1.  Take a heavy frying pan and roast the vermicelli until its 
     golden brown in colour.
 2.  Boil 3 cups of water in a pan and put 1 tbsp of oil and
     1/2 tsp of salt in it, put the vermicelli into it and boil until 
     its cooked al dente. Remove it from heat and strain and 
     run cold water through it. Put the remaining 1 tbsp of oil 
     so it doesn't stick, keep it aside.
3.  Heat a deep pan and put the oil, toss the sliced onions 
    and fry it to a light brown colour. Put all the dry ingredients 
    with the ginger-green chilli paste, salt and  tomatoes, stir a
   bit and add the carrot, capsicum, beans, peas and cook until 
   its tender but still crisp, add the boiled vermicelli and tomato            sauce, mix it well, let it simmer for 5 minutes on a low heat 
   and garnish it with chopped coriander and serve it hot with
   sauce or chutney.
