Serves: 4
  • 200 gm vermicelli, preferably the Pakistani variety, crushed
  • 1 litre milk
  • 4 tbsp custard
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp ghee
  • 4-5 cashew nuts
  • 5-6 raisins
  1. Mix the custard powder into ¾ cup of milk into a paste.
  2. Place the rest of the milk and bring it to a boil. Add the custard paste and sugar and mix till the mixture thickens. Set aside.
  3. Heat a frying pan. Roast the crushed vermicelli on low heat for 5-6 minutes, till it turns light brown. Ensure that you do not burn it.
  4. Add the roasted vermicelli into the prepared custard and now cook for upto 5 minutes till the vermicelli is cooked.
  5. Keep mixing and ensuring that the vermicelli does not form lumps.
  6. Heat the ghee, fry the cashewnuts and raisins and add it to the custard sewiyan. Serve topped with praline.
You can serve this custard with fruits and make it into fruit salad. You may also add dates and dry fruits while serving. I had made it a bit thick, you may make it slightly thinner by adding some more milk or by reducing the custard quantity.
