Seviyan (Sweet Vermicelli)

Cuisine: Indian
Courses: Dessert
Serves: 4 people

Recipe Ingredients

1 1/2 tablespoons 22mlGhee
125   Fine vermicelli
1 1/2 cups 355mlHot water
1/4 teaspoon 1.3mlSaffron strands
1/2 cup 99g / 3.5ozSugar
2 tablespoons 30mlSultanas
2 tablespoons 30mlSilvered blanched almonds
1/8 teaspoon 0.6mlGround cardamom

Recipe Instructions

Break the vermicelli into small pieces less than 2.5cm (1 inch) in length. They need not be uniform, but longer pieces make stirring difficult.

Heat ghee in a heavy saucepan and fry the vermicelli intil golden brown, stirring so it colours evenly. Add hot water and saffron and bring to the boil, then turn heat low, cover and simmer gently until vermicelli is cooked. Add sugar and sultanas and cook uncovered until liquid is absorbed. Stir in the almonds and cardamom, stir well and serve warm with cream.
