Tikhat Shevyo/Spiced Vermicelli

Vermicelli cooked with onion and a wee bit of spice.

This is a very easy dish that gets ready in minutes. You don’t need much effort to prepare this. Ideal for breakfast or as a simple tea-time snack. My aunt would prepare this when we visited her as kids. So whenever I am eating this, I remember the good old days.
