Sewiyan is one of the easiest Indian desserts to make and is also popular among mango lovers. Vermicelli roasted in ghee and cooked in milk along with dry fruits and raisins gives a strong competition to more commonly-made rice kheer. Sewiyan is mostly made during festivals like Karva Chauth and Eid, and you might know with its alias - pheni. Ring a bell? You don't have to wait for any special occasion to make this creamy, milky dessert; in fact, give it a summer spin to make mango sewiyan.
Vermicelli is thin noodle-like strands broken into smaller bits. It can be made of wheat atta, maida or even sooji. We recommend the sooji variety as it turns out to be velvety soft with a great taste, when cooked.
Mango sewiyan with the goodness of our favourite 'aam' is one summer mango dessert you have to make this season. It tastes best when chilled, so plan to make it in advance and give it ample time to cool. But, don't worry, making it won't take much time (less than 30 mins).

Step 3 - Add milk and boil vermicelli till almost cooked.
