Lemon Vermicelli with Roasted Dal and Curry Leaves

I used to prepare vermicelli in two ways usually- either salted with vegetables or sweet (recipes soon 🙂 ). But when I tried this variation, I and my children liked it very much, and now it has become a regular dish for breakfast in our home. Bonus- It is super easy to cook and super delicious to eat.
