Dry roast semiya in a wide pan, till it becomes a bit darker in colour and you get the roasted smell, around 4-5 mins. Keep it aside. If you are using roasted semiya, skip this step.
In the same pan, heat oil and crackle mustard seeds. Add dry red chilli, cashew, peanuts, pottukadala and chana dal. Fry for 1-2 mins.
Add chopped onion, ginger, green chilli, carrot and salt. Cook till it's done. Add hot water and bring to boil. Reduce flame to lowest and add roasted semiya. Mix well. Cover and cook for 5-7 mins, till the water is dried completely and semiya is cooked. Gently fluff it with a fork. Add chopped coriander leaves and mix well.
We usually eat it without any side dish, but if you want you can make some coconut chutneyto go with it.
You can also use coconut, if you like. Add 1/4 cup grated coconut once the veggies are cooked.You can add veggies of your choice like, potato, cauliflower, green peas etc; to make it more filling. Sometimes I add scrambled eggs or some leftover chicken or meat along with the veggies.
