  • Summary

    This is a take on vermicelli usli, also known as upma — an ideal South Indian breakfast, savory and satisfying, full of vegetables and delicate fried noodles, and seasoned with coconut and cashews. Though commonly made with carrots and peas, you can toss in whatever vegetables you have on hand. In summer, fresh corn adds plenty of crunch and sweetness, and the dish works for lunch and dinner, just as it is.

    Ingredients

    • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
    • 2 cups wheat vermicelli noodles (see Tip)
    • 1/2 teaspoon black mustard seeds 
    • 1 teaspoon urad dal (optional)
    • 1 red onion, finely chopped
    • 1 sprig fresh curry leaves
    • 1 green chile, such as serrano, finely chopped
    • 1 teaspoon kosher salt (Diamond Crystal)
    • 1 ear fresh corn, kernels cut off the cob
    • 1/2 cup roasted cashews, roughly chopped
    • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves, chopped, plus more for garnish
    • 1/4 cup frozen or fresh grated coconut, plus more for garnish
    • 1 lime, halved
