Nutty vermicelli dessert

Time:30 minutes


  • 200g roasted vermicelli
  • Oil
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 9 dessert spoons of sugar
  • Roasted or fried almonds, charoli and raisins to garnish


  •  Heat a heavy-bottomed pan*. Add a dash of oil into the pan and then throw in the sev and roast for a few
  • minutes until they turn golden brown.
  • Add the sugar and stir for 3-4 minutes, then add the water, a little at a time. Let it cook for 2 minutes.
  • Stir very gently, making sure the vermicelli does not break. Keep stirring or else the sugar will not melt but
  • don’t overcook. The strands of vermicelli should be soft, yet separate – you do not want a lumpy mess.
  • If you like, you may add vanilla essence or cardamom-nutmeg powder for flavouring. Garnish with slivers of
  • almonds and raisins.
