Garlic Methi Mutter Vermicelli

             Again this recipe is also made for the event,Herbs and flowers - Garlic.Actually first i made Garlic Methi Fried rice - Indo -chinese style but all my pictures were erased from the system..the entire folder was missing..may be my kiddoos work...this is fourth recipe they are deleting the pic folders ..i dunno what to do with them...Whichever button they press randomly will definitely have a specific function :)
              That too my lil' master Akshay , he use to operate the system to watch Gummy bear song - youtube..He use to install and uninstall applications...They use the opportunity bravely during my cooking hours...i will be cooking in the kitchen busily and my boys use to rule the computer .They broken my laptop screen and finished all the keys in it ....there are so many adventures done by them..they use to play with my kitchen utensils,spatulas,spoon n measuring cups n spoons.So far i bought about 3 sets of measuring cups n spoon sets but now i am able to see only one 1/2 cup :) they will play and then throw it...For them its all Use N Throw....They are costly boys and their maintenance charge is too high..:-)
Akshay has scribbled on the wall using gel pens n refill pens...he use to feed the wall with banana,strawberries and chocolates...Imagine h my walls n glass windows look?? So every weekend cleaning is my first n foremost job....sorry sorry i am way from my post...
              For a change i combined,garlic and methi to make a wonderful breakfast with Vermicelli.I added equal amount of vermicelli n methi you can reduce it also but it doesn't give any bitter taste..was so flavorful n yummy.The picture is the proof :)

  1. Vermicelli     1 cup
  2. Methi leaves     1 cup or less( i used frozen methi)
  3. Onion    1 medium(sliced)      
  4. Tomato   1 medium(chopped)
  5. Garlic    4-5 big cloves(cut int to thin slices)
  6. Carrot    2 tbsp finely chopped

  11. Salt   to taste
To Temper

  2. Fennel seeds    1 tsp
  3. Urad dal     2 tsp

  • Heat few drops of oil in a pan and roast the vermicelli till golden brown and keep aside.
  • In a wide vessel, pour 4 cups of water add a pinch of salt n 1/2 tsp oil and bring the water to boil.
  • When it starts boiling add the vermicelli and cook for 3-4 minutes and then drain the water completely and spread the vermicelli in a plate and allow to cool.
  • Heat oil in a kadai/pan, add the tempering ingredients and fry the urad till light golden color.
  • Then add garlic and fry nicely and then add onions and saute it for a minute.

  • Now add the methi leaves fry well and then add the chilli,curry n turmeric powder saute well . 
  • Stir fry for a minute and then add about 3-4 tbsp water and enough salt bring the mixture to boil .
  • Now add the cooked vermicelli and mix everything together gently and stir fry for 1-2 minutes in high flame.
  • Thats it...Yummy and healthy Garlic Methi Mutter Vermicelli is ready to serve ...Serve hot with plain yoghurt or any desired chutney/curry.
