An simple everyday dish which is easy, healthy and tasty for a breakfast or snack!!! I am sending this picture to Varadha's Event!! As you all know, I love photography as much as I enjoy cooking and eating. So, wanted to link one of my favorite shots for the food photography event. 

About the picture, its an sweet and savoury ragi semiya. I have used a coffee cup, napkin and spoons featuring an morning breakfast recipe with coffee or tea!! To contrast the background, used an serving plate. The picture is taken in diffused natural sunlight during mid noon using my dslr 18-55mm kit lens manual mode. This is a top view showing all colours and the hot plates!!!

Method of Preparation:

1. Prepare the ragi semiya: Take water in a big bowl, add salt and add the ragi semiya/vermicilli in it. Soak for 3 minutes and not more than that. Drain the water using a strainer. Cook the ragi semiya in steam for 5 minutes using Idli pan.
2. Divide the cooked ragi semiya equally for sweet and savoury version. For Sweet: In a bowl, add ragi semiya, sugar and grated fresh coconut. Mix it well. In the heat of semiya, the sugar melts and coats around the steamed semiya. Sweet semiya is ready. For Savoury: Heat oil in a medium non stick pan, add mustard, dry red chilli, green chilli and urad.
3. Add onions, curry leaves and salt. Add steamed ragi semiya. Mix well and cook in low flame for 5 minutes. Serve hot!!!

Notes:
  • Don't soak the semiya for more than 3 minutes, as it will loose its nature and go sticky. 
  • Don't steam it for more than 5 minutes, as it will go hard.
  • For sweet, you can also add a pinch of cardamom. Adjust sweetness according to your taste.
  • For savoury, you can also add a 1/2 tsp of garam masala in the end.
