Sweets are in demand in winter...
Vermicelli, we name it 'siwaiyyan'
The dish is associated to 'Eid' especially :)
Some times when we add Khurma 'dried dates' siwainyyan can be named Sheer Khurma :))
1-Vermicelli 'Siwainyan' crushed 1 Cup
2-Almonds, Pistachios & Coconut crushed (all together) 1 cup
3-Dried dates 6/7
4-Cardamom 6/7 seeds
5-Butter/ghee ½ cup
6-Milk 1 liter
7-Condensed milk 1 tin
8-Sugar ¼ cup
9-Saffron 2 pinches
Heat butter or ghee along with cardamoms on a medium flame in a large pan. after a few seconds add all nuts when it is slightly roasted add all siwainyyan and fry well all together when siwaiyyan smell roasted pour the milk, turn fire to the high flame and after a few seconds of the boil, turn the flame to below medium add saffron ….let it be boiling…
When it will become slightly thick, pour the tin of condensed milk into the siwainyyan
After 10 minutes taste it and add sugar if required.
It is a tasty dessert. Nuts, Milk, Saffron, Cardamom, Butter & Vermicelli have high nutrition values so the combination of all these make it rich...It's a favorite dish for all age. Some like it hot and some cold :))
If you don't have saffron...leave it
If you want a rich flavor...add some drops of Kewra
Serve it as per your friends' desire... hot or cold :)
