Sweet Vermicelli | Sewiyan

Let’s have some poetry today!
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old things that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.
The Riddle of Strider – J. R, R. Tolkien
And for some more profound words… do read here… something that touched and moved my heart a lot… and made me realise, Alhamdulillah, all is well… πŸ™‚


I guess most of my recent posts keeps reassuring the fact of how lazy a cook I am! I love meals that can be finished in a jiffy and can taste as though you have slogged for hours… hehe… I had just posted a savory version last month, so here is a sweet one – so quick and apt for those lazy mornings or great for chai time along with a cup of hot sizzling tea! It hardly takes 20 minutes from start to end and just tastes simple and tasty. I am sure all of you have your own version of making your vermicelli sweet. Here is mine…

  • 200 gm thin vermicelli crushed
  • 1 tbsp ghee
  • 5-6 cashew nuts
  • 10-15 raisins
  • 250 ml milk
  • 250 ml coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • A pinch of cardamom


  • Heat ghee in a wok. Fry the cashew nuts, allow the raisins to puff.
  • Add the crushed vermicelli and toss lightly.
  • Now add the milks slowly till the vermicelli soaks it up.
  • Cook for around five minutes stirring occasionally.
  • Finally add in the sugar and cardamom and cook till sugar melts.
  • Switch off and serve warm!


As it cools, it tends to stick together. Cook on low flame by adding some water or milk till it becomes soft.
