Vermicelli with Mixed Veggies

My typical afternoon routine is to look at blogs ,tweak my blog(so very addicted to it) and try out recipes to put on my blog:).So as I was thinking of what to cook for my son (he naps, i blog), I came across Food For Plastic Challenge III Event hosted by What's cooking?

Tupperware is celebrating April as Children’s month and they are donating $1 from the sale of selected items to the Boys & Girls Clubs.

This is my entry towards the Challenge and also my son's evening snack.(He has been eating this since he was almost a year old.Very yummy and the Veggies go in too!)


Melted Butter or Ghee.(Clarified Butter) 1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds 1/2 tsp
Pepper as per taste (I do 3-4 rounds on the pepper mill)
salt as per taste
Turmeric 1 pinch for colour
Asafoetida 3 pinches (optional)

Frozen mixed veggies 1 small bowl
Vermicelli 1/2 cup(I buy Bambino's Roasted Vermicelli from the Indian Grocery Store)
Water to cook

In a pan, heat butter and add Cumin seeds, pepper,turmeric and asafoetida

After a minute,add the mixed veggies,salt and water.Cover and cook till tenter.

Add the vermicelli to the boiling water .Lower the heat and cover it.Cook till the water evaporates.
