Sevaiya kheer | marathi shevayanchi kheer | vermicelli pudding/VERMICELI DESSERT / SHEVAIYA/SHEVAYA /SHEVAYANCHI KHEER

Kheer is my favourite sweet dish since childhood.....I generally like to eat it chilled....

This was the first sweet dish prepared by me ( as per my moms instrructions) after we shifted to hyderabad . It turned out to be quite yummy.

In Maharashtra,  New Year's Day, also called Gudi Padwa. In India, every celebration and festival calls for a special dessert and I decided to make the easiest of them all: kheer.

Kheer is essentially a dessert made from some carb (rice or noodles) cooked in milk and sugar, flavored with some cardamom and saffron. The kheer most commonly made at my moms home was sevayachi kheer. Seviyan is vermicelli, a very thin pasta.
This is a very easy kheer.

1 cup vermicelli/shevaya
3/4 cup sugar
2-3 tbsp pure ghee
2 tsp milk masala
1/2 tsp green cardamon powder
2 litres milk
5-6 saffron strands
slices of pista & almond

1) Heat ghee in a pan and stir-fry Shevaya till pinkish .add little water & let shevaya cook for 2 minutes
2) Put milk to boil and let it reduce to 1½ litres
3) Add  boiling milk to sevaiya, then add sugar
4) Bring it to a boil again & reduce to 1 litre. Add milk masala & cardamon powder
5) Chill in the refrigerator for half an hour before serving
6) Decorate with slices of pista & almond.


1. You can add some milkmaid to the kheer.
