Seviya Kheer



Vermicelli kheer or vermicelli pudding is also called seviya kheer in (north India) and payasam in (south India).
It is a very simple to make, healthy dessert. It can be made using low fat milk.
This yummy dessert is great for festival cooking and today on account of rang panchami I decided to make this.
Ingredients
1 cup seviya
4 cups milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup water
1/2 tsp cardamon powder
1/2 tsp nutmeg powder
few strands of kesar /saffron
nuts and raisin according to your liking.
1 tsp ghee
Method
In a wok add a tsp ghee roast the nuts and raisin keep aside.Now add the broken seviya and roast until little golden brown.Keep stiring so that they don't get burned.Pour a cup of water and let the seviya cook until they are just soft.Add the milk,sugar,cardamon powder,nuts,raisins and cook it for 7-8 min.Alternatively you can just boil the milk with sugar,cardamon,nuts and raisin till it reduces to 3/4th of the quantity and add this to the cooked seviya.Mix kesar with a tbsp of milk and add it to the kheer and mix well.Serve kheer at room temperature or chilled.
