I have added cashew milk and almond milk in the vermicelli pudding. I made the nuts milk from scratch. Since the kheer itself is made from cashew and almond milk, I have not added chopped cashews or almonds to milk. Just added some black raisins with saffron and cardamom powder.

Vermicelli pudding recipe - vegan Indian vermicelli pudding made with cashew milk, almond milk and vermicelli. A no oil/ghee recipe.
Author:Dassana Amit
Prep Time:15 mins
Cook Time:15 mins
Total Time:30 mins
Servings (change the number to scale):4 bowls
(1 CUP = 250 ML)


  • 1.5 cup almond milk
  • 1.5 cup cashew milk
  • 1.5 cup wheat vermicelli (seviyan)
  • 1.5 cup water
  • 8 to 9 tablespoon sugar - add less or more for desired sweetness
  • 4 to 5 green cardamon (choti elaichi), crushed or ½ teaspoon cardamom powder
  • 1 tablespoon black currants, sliced or chopped
  • 1 pinch saffron (kesar)


  • In a pan or kadai dry roast the vermicelli till they get a golden hue.
  • Lower the flame and in the same pan, add both the cashew milk and almond milk. stir.
  • Add sugar, and mix well.
  • The mixture will begin to thicken as the vermicelli begins to get cooked.
  • If you want a thin pudding, then add water.
  • Whereas if you want a thick pudding like kheer then there is no need to add water.
  • Since at home we prefer thin pudding hence I have added 1.5 cups of water.
  • Simmer for 7-10 minutes till the vermicelli becomes soft and is cooked well.
  • Add the cardamom powder, saffron and raisins.
  • Simmer vermicelli pudding for a couple of minutes or till the mixture thickens slightly or as per your requirement.
  • Then remove from fire.
  • Serve vermicelli pudding hot or warm.
  • Or you can chill and serve the pudding cold.


The consistent of the vermicelli pudding depends on the almond and cashew milk consistency. For a thinner consistency add water.
To make the nuts milk from scratch:
  1. Take 1 cup almonds & 1 cup cashew nuts.
  2. Soak the almonds and cashews in water for 3-4 hours or overnight.
  3. In a blender add the almonds and cashews.
  4. If you want you can remove the almond peel.
  5. Add 1.5 to 2 cups water and blend till smooth and fine.
  6. Use this mixture of the almond and cashew milk to make this vegan pudding.
  7. No straining is required here.

  1. Hi Dassana, Can I make this kheer using coconut milk?

    • Grace, yes you can. but just warm the coconut milk and don’t boil it. First cook the vermicelli in some water and then towards the end add the coconut milk.

      • Ok. Thanks Dassana. I find the nut milks very heavy so I’ll try this with coconut milk.

        • Welcome Grace

  10. WOW! This Kheer is just adorable. Cashews are my favorite nuts but, have never tasted or found cashew milk here. Have seen and used almond milk however. I have a new blender now and I will make my own cashew and almond milk and try this kheer soon.
