Traditional Indian desserts are not restricted to festivals or seasons. We like to enjoy our favourite desserts all year round. Vermicelli is commonly used to make kheer (popularly called seviyan kheer) as bhog for many religious occasions. It is creamy, milky and oh-so sweet. Vermicelli strands are boiled in milk, sweetened with sugar and flavoured with spices like cardamom and dry fruits like almonds and raisins. Those soft noodle-like straps that are sweetened make this dish a true delight. Not many know that vermicelli, or seviyan, can be used to make other desserts as well. Yes, you read that right!
