Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Wishing everyone a very happy Dasara. Nine days are over so early and this time I enjoyed the Navarathri very much. The reason is Dandiya. I love dancing and this was the best occasion to dance and make myself happy. Yes, I attended Dandiya program all the five nights! Yesterday was the last day and I danced for 4 hours with only 15 minutes break. But still feeling like dancing!
Usually, we prepare Sajjaka holige(Semolina halwa poli) on this occasion. But as I got busy with some other work, I went for a quick Vermicelli payasam. I have already posted the normal way of making this kheer.
Now giving you the quickest way to make delicious Seviyan kheer.
This is actually for Smitha's event, I thought of making it in M/W. Even for me it was a first time. We all loved it. As my DH is also here, and its his favorite sweet, I was happy to make it and was happy also for the outcome.
Roasted thin vermicelli - 1 cup(I got these packets from UAE)
Sugar - 1/8 cup
Condensed milk - small can or 1/2 cup
Cardamom powder - 1/4th tsp
Ghee - 2 tbsp
Dry fruits(almond, cashew nuts, raisins)- 1/4 cup
Water - 1 1/2 cup
Keep the water in a M/W Safe vessel and keep on HIGH for 2 minutes. Add the roasted vermicelli and keep on HIGH again for 60 to 90 seconds. Remove it, add sugar and cardamom powder. Mix well. Keep on HIGH again for 1 minute. Open, add condensed milk and keep it aside.
Take another small vessel and add ghee in to it. Keep on HIGH for 1 minute. Add dry fruits and keep on HIGH for 1 to 2 minutes or till the dry fruits are fried.
Remove and add it to the vermicelli mix.
Keep on HIGH for 30 seconds. Allow for 2 minutes.
Open and serve hot. Or keep in the fridge after its cold to have chilled kheer.
