Cooking Instructions

Sweet vermicelli cooked to perfection with raisins andalmonds, a great and quick dessert to be enjoyed with a cup of coffee or chai.  It is so simple to make and it tastes awesome.It tastes even better when topped with khoa. I made this dish in less fat and less sugar, if you want more taste, youcan add more sugar and ghee.

Ingredients:
Vermicelli ( Thin ones)            1 cup
Water                                   1 cup
Sugar                                    ½ cup
Crushed Green Cardamoms       4 no.
Ghee                                     1tbsp+1 tsp.
Fried Raisins & Cashews           for Garnishing
Kesar color                             a pinch

Method:
  • In a pan put one teaspoon ghee and fry the vermicellitill light brown.  Constantly stir it toensure even browning. Keep aside.

  • In the same pan add one tsp of ghee and fry the cashewnuts and raisins. Keep aside.
  • Take a frying pan, add water and bring into boil.
  • Now add the fried vermicelli and cook till soft.


  • Now add sugar,crushed cardamons and color in it. Mix it well.
  • Cook till it thickens in low flame.
  • Add remaining ghee and stir thoroughly and make sure andwater is completely absorbed.
  • Garnish with fried cashew nuts, and raisins.
  • Transfer it to a glass bowl.
  • Serve hot chilled with tea or as snacks.


Note: 
  • For Health reasons, I made this dish in less fat andless sugar.  You can add khoya  or milkmaid for more creamy tasty. If you want more taste, you can add more sugar and ghee.
  • Instead of water, you can add whole milk also.
