Eid walla Semaiya- Vermicelli Kheer
Preparation: 5 mins
Cooking time: 20/30 mins
3- Handful of thin Semaiya
500ml whole milk
10- Cashew nut (optional)
10- Raisins (optional)
7-teaspoon sugar (or according to your taste. We like light sweetness)
Pinch of saffron (optional)
Heat oil in a pan and fry the Semaiya until golden brown and a lovely nutty smell hits your nostril
- Add Cashew and Raisin (if using). I like to fry my nuts a little for the smell that oozes out of the fried nuts
- Add milk. On a low heat, stirring constantly reduce the quantity of the milk. Remember once cool, the Semaiya thickens a little more.
- Stir in sugar, cardamom and a pinch of saffron. Cook for another 5 mins
- Serve it hot or cold. Sprinkle some coconut slice on top if you like. Or some chopped nuts.
Yummy! We are happy, our tummy is full and our heart is satisfied.
Enjoy your Eid!
