Seviyan is also known as semiyan in hindi. this is a quick dessert recipe that is done in less than 20 mins. Sweet vermicelli is usually made during festive occasions. There are few more delicious sweet recipes you can make with seviyan like:

I get nostalgic when making meethi seviyan as we enjoyed eating them as kids. My mom used to make them quite often with milk. We used to have them as a sweet evening snack. However, you can have them as an after meal dessert also.

In this dry seviyan recipe, I have used milk. though you can also cook seviyan with water. You could add dry fruits of your choice in this meethi seviyan recipe. I have used pre roasted whole wheat thin vermicelli for the seviyan and then further fried in ghee for even browning.

This sweet seviyan recipe has one more ingredient which makes it more flavorful. That ingredient is milk powder. Milk powder gives an added flavor and taste to any dessert. But if you want, you can skip milk powder for this recipe.

How to make meethi seviyan

1. Firstly keep all the ingredients ready for the seviyan. Break the seviyan and keep aside.

5. On a low to medium flame, with frequent stirrings, roast the seviyan till they become golden. since I used pre roasted seviyan, I didn’t have to roast the seviyan much. However, if you use seviyan which is not roasted, then you will need to roast for some more time.

Notes

Few tips for making sweet vermicelli
  1. You could double or triple the recipe if you need more quantity.
  2. Allow the seviyan to absorb the milk and become dry. Otherwise it would taste more like kheer.
  3. If you like seviyan kheer then add more milk.
  4. Dry fruits of your choice can be added.
  5. Once the milk is absorbed by the seviyan switch off the gas otherwise the vermicelli would taste dry.
