Curd Vermicelli / Semiya

I had cooked vermicelli in place of rice when I visited one of my cousin. Of all I like Curd vermicelli. I wanted to try it for a while. However my kids are not warming up that idea. And I am so lazy to do just for me. Now since my in laws are in town I have more reason to try long awaited dishes as I have more people to give it a try and give feedback. MIL was surprised and told me she never tried before. In the end it turned out be good and everyone liking it. This is definitely lighter than the curd rice
