Semiya Bagalabath/Thayir Semyiya

                                                           Semiya Bagalabath is prepared just like curd rice and instead of rice semiya is used.It is easier and tastier option.I often make it when i have people over for dinner,instead of making curd rice i make curd semiya or semiya bagalabath.It tastes good when served chilled so i prepare much ahead of time and put it in the fridge garnished with a lot of fruits.It is so simple that even a ten year old can make it!!!



You will Need

  • Half cup Roasted vermicelli
  • Half cup Milk
  • One cup thick Curds
  • Salt to taste
  • Two tsp Oil
  • A pinch of Asafoetida
  • One to two Green chilli
  • One small piece of Ginger
  • Few Curry Leaves
  • One tsp Chopped Coriander Leaves
  • Few Green Grapes and Pomegranates 


How to

  • Boil vermicelli in one and half cups water with a little salt and a tsp of oil.If you don't get roasted vermicelli heat one tsp oil in a pan and roast the vermicelli until it turns to slight brown in colour.


  •  Boiling takes about three to four minutes.Add half cup milk stir well and switch off the stove and allow it to cool.


  •  When it cools it would have absorbed all the milk like shown in the picture.


  •  Add a little more salt if required and add thick curds.


  •  Heat oil in a pan crackle mustard seeds switch off stove add chopped ginger,green chilli,asafoetida and curry leaves.


  •  Pour over the cooked vermicelli and mix well.Add chopped coriander leaves.


  • Garnish with green grapes,pomegranates and enjoy with pickle.
