Sevai Kheer or Biranj

Sevaiya, Sevai or Biranj is a sweet dish made using wheat vermicelli and milk. I made it during Navratri this year as an offering. Here is the recipe for this simple but tasty desert.

3 Cups milk (whole milk preferable for rich taste)
1 Cup Wheat Vermicelli
1 Tablespoon Ghee or Unsalted butter
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 Big Pinch Saffron
1/4 Cup Sliced Almonds
1/4 Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
1/2 Teaspoon Corasly Ground Cardamom Powder

Heat milk in a pan and bring it to boil. In the mean time, heat the ghee in another pan. Once it is hot, add the wheat vermicelli to the pan. Turn the heat to medium-low and roast the vermicelli till it turns light brown. When the milk comes to a boil, add it to the vermicelli. Add sugar, saffron, cardamom powder and nutmeg powder and mix thoroughly. Cook on medium heat for about 10 minutes or until the milk starts to bubble. Take off of the stove. Garnish with sliced almonds.
This desert can be served warm or cold. It tastes good either ways.
