Thayir Semiya is a great alternative of Curd Rice. Like Curd rice , there are many variation for this Curd Semiya too ..

Variations :::

So now let’s see the detailed recipe..


  • 1 cup Vermicelli / Semiya
  • 1 cup Chilled curd
  • 3 to 4 tbsp Milk (Optional)
  • Few drops Ghee
  • Pomegranate, to garnish
  • Salt to taste

For Temper:

  • 1 tsp Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
  • 1/2 tsp Urad Dal
  • 4 to 5 Cashew, broken
  • Some Curry Leaves


First , we will cook the Vermicelli. For that boil 3 to 4 cup water. Once it starts boiling add Vermicelli , some salt and few drops of ghee . Ghee will help to keep semiya non sticky ..

Let it cook for few mins. Cook until semiya becomes soft.Drain water and set aside to cool down completely. Add half cup water to stop further cooking of semiya..

Fluff it with a fork when it is still warm else it will become very sticky.

In a wide mixing take cooked semiya, add whisked curd, Milk (optional). Give good Mix.

Heat oil in pan and add Urad Dal, Mustard seeds , chopped Cashews … When it’s all properly done , add some curry leaves and asafoetida… Now add this temper on curd semiya.

Keep this curd semiya in freeze until you serve. Add salt at time of serving only.
