I made Kheer with Vermicelli, this is a classic Indian dessert, made for so many occasions like festivals or for a simple dessert.
Vermicelli - 1/2 cup (use any small noodles instead
Milk - 1 to 1 1/2 cup
Sugar- 1/2 cup
Saffron - few strands
Dry fruit& nuts - 2 tsp(almonds,cashew and raisins mixed together)
Ghee - 1tsp (for roasting vermicelli and nuts)
- First roast vermicelli using little ghee , till golden color,keep aside. In the same pan roast almonds and keep aside. Let them cool a bit.
- In a heavy bottom pan heat milk, when it comes to boil add roasted and cooled vermicelli, and add sugar as well and few strands of saffron to milk. Let the vermicelli cook, it plumps a bit and milk with thicken. Add more milk or water if need to thin the mixture.
- Once milk and vermicelli have incorporated well and cooked, add toasted nut on top.
Enjoy warm or when cooled to room temperature, put it in fridge for at least an hour and eat it cold. Either way tastes good.
