Thanks Giving With a Sweet Note

This post is dedicated to all those beautiful people who believed and connected with me & my work. This simple and delicious sweet is my dedication to all of them.
This Vermicelli Kheer is a famous & instant sweet prepared down South of India by many at all occasions.Be it a birthday, a function or any festival, the first thing that my mother-in-law prepares is this sweet concoction.

(makes 4 servings)
  • 100 grams of Vermicelli or Semiyan
  • 1/2 ltr.of whole milk
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • Handful of dried fruits
  • 2 tsp of Ghee (Clarified butter)

Method: Dry roast the vermicelli till it turns golden in color. Heat a heavy bottom vessel and boil 2 cups of water in it. Add the fried vermicelli in the boiling water and let it cook for 10 minutes. Pour the whole milk and keep boiling the mixture for another 10 minutes. Take it off from the flames and keep aside.
Heat a wok and add 2 tsp of ghee in it. Add the coarsely crushed dried fruits such as Almonds, cashew and raisins in it. Fry for a minute and put off the gas.
Pour this fried dried fruits in the cooked vermicelli as a garnish and serve hot.

Now is the time to show my respect and give credits to all who deserve it.
