Vermicelli kheer

Unlike most people, i don't like sweet much. And its quite evident from my blog too, i don't have much desserts or sweets :). May be that's the reason my sweets never turn up quite well..But this is the most simple and delicious sweet that i Do cook often. And the good thing is that you needn't be quite exact about measurements, can vary according to your taste, even when its already done.


Vermicelli/seviya 1/2 cup
Milk 3 cups
Sugar 1 cup
Dry fruits (of your choice,cashew or raisins)
Cardamom powder 1 tsp
Ghee 1/2 tbsp


Take a pan, add ghee and fry vermicelli until golden brown.
Add 2 cups of milk and let the vermicelli cook, slowly adding remaining milk,let it simmer on medium heat until the milk starts to condense.
Add sugar and keep stirring on low heat.
Then add powdered cardamom. Fry the cashews and raisins in a separate pan with ghee until golden brown. Add to the above and stir well.
Serve hot or chilled, it tastes equally good.

Note: I do make this a bit thick, but normally it needs to be thin,with about 1 cup more milk into it
