In my college days, we are calling this as "Bambino Biriyani, there is a secret behind this name that we found this recipe on bambino vermicelli packs. Its remained me my college days. Later on its modified by us as easy version.

1 cup Water
1 Onion(cut into slices)
3 Green Chillies(chopped)
2 tbsp Green Peas(I used frozen one)
1 sp Ginger Garlic past
1 Star Anise
5 Cloves
2 Cardamom pods
1/2" Cinnamon
1tsp Masala powder
1tbsp Cooking Oil
In a skillet add the oil and cardamom, cloves, Cinnamon, star anise and fry the spices until the nice aroma will come out from them.
Add the chilly, onion slices and peas, fry them till cooked well. Add ginger garlic past and fry again for few minutes.
Now add the vermicelli to this, stir well and pour 1 cup of warm water, when the vermicelli is changing color. Add salt and masala powder, mix it well. Close the lid and cook in low flame till the water gets absorbed. Remove from flame.
