Thanks for the comment and suggestion Sanghi. Will try adding veggies next time. I usually add veggies to vermicelli upma only. Never tried adding veggies to rice noodles.

Hi Sarita, This is a good healthy and easy dish. We can add finely chopped veggies like beans, carrot and green peas for additional taste.
