Shevaya Kheer (Vermicelli kheer/pudding)

Shevaya/vermicelli kheer is one dessert which make quite frequent appearances in my home. I love it for its simplicity and yet such a rich taste. It is always served as 'Naivedyam', for auspicious days such as Gauri-Ganpati Pujan. 

This is one sweet which you can enjoy both during meal and after the meal. You can serve it hot with puri/chapathi. Or you can keep it in fridge and enjoy as a chilled dessert relaxing on your sofa.

Recipe for this homely dessert is very simple. Only one thing you need to consider is that, once kheer starts cooling down it becomes thick. So you need to adjust milk quantity depending on whether you like it thick or not. At my home we like it little bit thick.


Ingredients:
1 cup vermicelli/shevaya (broken)
4 1/2 cup milk
1/2 - 3/4 cup sugar ( adjust to your taste)
3 tbsp ghee
1 tbsp badam/almonds cut into small pieces
1 tbsp split cashews
1 tbsp raisins

Method:
  1. Heat one tbsp ghee and fry almonds,raisins and cashews for 3-4 minutes. Keep it aside.
  2. Heat remaining ghee and fry vermicelli till it turns golden.
  3. Heat milk in deep vessel.
  4. Once milk starts boiling add vermicelli. Keep stirring frequently till kheer is completely done.
  5. Add sugar.
  6. After few minutes, you can taste and adjust sugar to your liking. Let mixture simmer till vermicelli gets cooked nicely.
  7. Add cashews, raisins and almonds. Delicious kheer is ready!
Preparation time: 20-25 minutes
