Soya Chunks Biryani|Semiya Biryani

      Most of us hate semiya/vermicelli when making upma.I too hate semiya upma due to my hostel stay.I like only ragi idiyappam.To make people eat semiya you can make a biryani out of it ,seems to be a good idea? and also its a best variation to regular vegetable ,mushroom ,chicken biryani's.This recipe is really helpful for moms who want an interesting new lunch recipe.You can cook it for your guest within few minutes and surprise them.

     I actually made the semiya biryani along with soya chunks it was so delicious and very filling..This soya -semiya combination happened because of shh cooking secret challenge started by priyasuresh sis.This month my pair is nilofuer who blogs at kitchensamraj, she gave me this 2  wonderful ingredients.
     You can try adding veggies instead of soya chunks but soya gives the protein you want when you are making a simple variety rice.You can make it as a soya chunks pulao too by adding some coconut milk(it must be delicious).This spicy beauty goes well with a simple yogurt or cucumber raita.
