Namkin Jave and an Award.....
Jave (as we call it in U.P) is a kind of vermicelli with a difference that, these are Home+Hand made with whole wheat flour mixed with all-purpose flour. My Grandmother, mother and sometimes my aunts also sit and chat in the afternoon while their hands are busy in twisting and making these delicious Jave. It seems really easy when u see them doing it without paying much attention how their fingers are moving, but when I tried then i know its really tricky to make them long and thin like angel hair pasta.
This recipe is really common at my home. When ur in hurry this recipe is really handy.
1 cup Roasted Jave (vermicelli)
1/2 cup peas (add any vegetable of ur choice, but i like it just with peas.)
1 Green Chili Chopped
1/2 tsp Cumin Seeds
1/2 tsp Turmeric Pd
1/2 tsp Coriander Pd
1 tbsp oil
Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds. Let them crackle and add turmeric and coriander pd. Stir for few seconds and add green chilli and peas. Add Jave, salt and 2 1/2 cups of water. Cover it and cook till peas and jave are cooked to Al dante (I want to use the term with our Indian Pasta)
There should be no water in it.
Serve it with a dash of desi ghee and chat masala.
(I use to add ketchup and Little bit of sugar, and still like it that way)
