Semige Bath/Semiya Pulav

Here is another one of my “ready in a instant recipe”.  Whether its breakfast, lunch or evening snack this is the perfect dish especially when there is very little time in your hands. Semige (in Kannada) is Indian noodles. Semige bath /Pulav are made with dried Semige cooked in hot water. It is then drained and mixed with stir fried veggies. 

Dried Semige is readily available in the market. There are many brands you can choose from. The brand of Semiya I used is Pavitra. I bought from a store in Udupi. You can use any local made Semiya also.

Dried rice Semige – 250 gms
Onion – 1 medium
Carrot -1 medium sized finely chopped (optional)
Green chili – 1
Curry leaves - 1 handful
Mustard Seeds – 1 tsp
Jeera – ½ tsp
Turmeric – ½ tsp
Ginger Garlic paste – ½ tsp
Garam masala – 1 tsp
Coriander leaves – a handful

1.       Boil water and add it to the rice Semige. Let it cook for a 3 to 4 minutes. Then drain and keep aside.
2.       In a wok  heat oil. To this add mustard seed, jeera, green chilli,turmeric.
3.       Add onion and sauté for a minute or two. Add carrot and let it cook.
4.       Now add the ginger garlic paste and garam masala.
5.       Add the cooked rice Semige.
6.       Season with salt. Garnish with coriander leaves.
