Sweet Vermicelli / Seviyan Ka Meetha

Seviyan is Vermicelli, this is a thin spaghetti which is used to make sweet and savory dishes. This is a quick dessert, usually made for festive occasions, but I make this for breakfast. We love this dish. Usually in this seviyan cardamon powder is used to flavor, but I prefer to use vanilla essence, which gives a unique flavor to this dish. Try it and see.

Week 4 day  6 of our Mega marathon and this week the theme is Breakfast from Countries.  My today's breakfast is from none other than my own country Mera Bharat Mahan.


1 Cup Vermicelli  - crushed in small bits
2 Tablespoon Ghee
1-1/2 Cups water
Pinch salt
1/2 Cup sugar  or to taste
2 Tablespoons sliced almonds, cashews and raisins
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla essence or cardamom powder


Melt the ghee pan over medium heat,  fry the nuts and raisins  lightly remove, keep aside.  In the same pan add vermicelli and stir fry until golden brown this should take about 4 minutes. Add water and salt. Increase the heat to high and bring it to boil. When the water starts boiling reduce the heat to low and cook till vermicelli is soft and the water is just absorbed but not dry.   Add vanilla essence,  sugar, mix it well and cook for 4 minutes over medium heat. Turn off the heat, cover the pan and let it sit for at least 10 minutes before serving.  Add the fried nuts and raisins, reserving some for garnishing.

Garnish  with the nuts and serve hot.  Enjoy!!!

My Notes: If vermicelli gets dry it will become hard after adding sugar, add 1-2 spoons of water before adding the sugar.
