  3. 3. Remove from idli pans and very gently separate the vermicelli's using your finger tips, keep aside.

  6. 6. Next add thin slices of onions, green chillies, ginger pieces and curry leaves and saute till onions turn translucent.

  8. 8. Now add the cooked veggies stir and cook for about a minute.
