Is there anything more satisfying than a bowl of noodles? Perhaps, a bowl of healthy vermicelli is a good option, especially for fitness enthusiasts! Vermicelli is a thinner version of pasta with origins in Italy, Asia, and even Mexico. It is a healthier alternative to pasta or noodles because it is made from refined flour or rice, and it is a popular choice among children.
Vermicelli is widely popular around the world, with a variety of dishes prepared in various parts of the world. The best part is that vermicelli has no flavor of its own, making it a versatile food that absorbs the flavor of the ingredients with which it is cooked. These vermicelli dishes are not only delicious for breakfast, but also as a snack with your evening tea or coffee. These dishes can also be packed in your child’s lunch box, as they enjoy vermicelli with any South Indian chutney or raita of their choice.
