Corn vermicelli

Hope u enjoy this recipe as much as we were enthused to invent it. Simple, fresh and awesome.

  • 3/4 cup Vermicelli noodles 
  • 1 Small white onion , sliced in half moons
  • Corn kernels from a sweet cob
  • 3/4 tsp Garam masala
  • 1/4 tsp Thyme (dried)
  • 1 green chilly, slit lengthwise
  • 1 tsp ghee or clarified butter
  • fresh cilantro leaves for garnish, finely chopped
  • Salt to taste
To start , slice the kernels from the corn cob , rinse and let it sit and strain.

Take a non stick pan, heat 1/4tsp ghee and roast the vermicelli noodles. Once they are lightly browned, bring them on a  platter off the heat to cool.  Now in the same emptied pan , add rest of the ghee to heat. Add the onions , green chillies and corn , sauté.  

As the onions sweat and get translucent , add garam masala and salt . Stir. Add thyme ,crushing it between your palms and sprinkling. Mix. Now add 3/4- 1cup water to the same pan and bring to a boil. Once the water boils, add the roasted vermicelli and stir again .The vermicelli should be covered half an inch in water. Cover, let it sit and simmer for 5 minutes.

Uncover , serve hot with a garnish of cilantro leaves
