Seviyan Kheer

 


Seviyan is among the most popular desserts in India. It is one dessert that you cannot afford to miss on any Indian festival. I love Seviyan for its superb taste and simplicity of preparation. Here I am sharing my favorite recipe. Also because I am replacing sugar with Sugar Free Natura, so it is ideal for health conscious people, weight watchers or diabetics. 



The recipe is very simple and quick. The cooking time is 10-15 mins. 

Here is the list of ingredients for two servings.

1. Vermicelli Seviyan  - 01 Cup 
2. Milk                         - 1 Ltr
3. Almonds                  - 8 to 10 pcs
4. Resin                        -8 to 10 pcs
5. Cashew nut               -8 to 10 pcs
6. Bay leaf                   - 01 Nos
7. Cloves                     - 3 to 4 pcs  
8. Cinnamon                - 1 stick 
9. Cardamom               - 3 to 4 pcs 
10.Grated dry coconut - 2 tablespoon                     (Khopra)
11.Ghee                    - 1 tablespoon 
12. Sugar Free Natura - As per taste

Method:

1. Heat the ghee in a pan. Saute cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, bay leaf for 10 seconds on low flame. The release of aroma will indicate the next step to be followed.



2. Add roasted vermicelli to the aromatic affair and fry till golden brown.

3. Now add warm milk into the vermicelli mixture and boil it on a medium flame. Reduce the milk by boiling it to consistency of your preference. I prefer a thin consistency of seviyan as shown in my click below. 

4. Add Sugar Free Natura as per your taste. Remember to use it judiciously as it is 600 times more sweeter than the regular sugar. 
5. Now add grated dry coconut.
6. For plating, pour it in a colourful bowl and garnish it with chopped almonds and cashew nuts. 
   Enjoy it with your family and friends.



The recipe may have some deviations from the standard form as it is our family traditional recipe. Also because my mother is diabetic we prefer to make sweets or desserts using sugar free substitute. Sugar free is an easy way to check your body sugar level in order to maintain healthy, weight control or obesity control. Happy Desserts !!!!
