KesariSeviyan_Featured2

This is the most easy breezy recipe when some unannounced guests come over. Its ready in minutes with ingredients you probably will have at home. Traditionally, Seviyan or Sewai or Semiyan or Vermicelli in English or Pasta Fideo in Spanish were made at home with whole wheat dough and then sun-dried in the open. I remember I used to sit with my mother and grandmother during summer days and try help making these. Although my little hands wouldn’t be of much help but it was fun imitating the ladies. They made them with sugar syrup or with milk. Both of them tasted phenomenal. I thought to make with sugar syrup the other day and my little one loved it. Thought to share the recipe with you as Rakshabandhan is around the corner.

Directions:

1. In a wok add some ghee or clarified butter and add roasted Vermicelli to it. Toss them around for a minute so that vermicelli absorbs the flavour of ghee.
