generally when we make seviyan kheer, we only add cardamom powder. but in this recipe, i have used cloves and saffron strands which have been inspired from a cook book. both are optional and can be skipped. but both the cloves and saffron do added their subtle fragrance to the kheer.

for the seviyan aka vermicelli, i have used whole wheat thin vermicelli. as far as nuts & dry fruits are concerned you can add your choice of nuts & dry fruits. i have added almond slivers, chopped cashews and golden raisins.

a south indian variation to this kheer is semiya payasam. you check the recipe here –  semiya payasam recipe.

recipe notes

few tips for semiya kheer recipe

  1. the recipe can be easily doubled or tripled.
  2. use good quality & fresh full fat milk.
  3. the amount of vermicelli can be decreased or increased. if you add more seviyan the consistency will be much thicker like a thick pudding. you can go for the kheer consistency as per your liking.
  4. dry fruits can be added as per your choice. you can also add some rose water to the seviyan kheer. 
  5. when cooled the seviyan kheer tends to be thick. so if you don't like thick semiya kheer then don't thicken the milk. alternatively you can add some more milk to the seviyan kheer.
  6. addition of cloves, saffron and rose petals is optional in this semiya kheer recipe.
