Caramelized Vermicelli Kheer


2 tsp ghee/clarified butter
3/4 cup vermicelli/semiya
3.5 cup milk
1/3 cup sugar
1 tbsp raisins
1 tbsp cashews
1/4 tsp cardamom powder


1. Firstly, in a large kadai heat 1 tsp ghee and roast vermicelli on low flame until it turns golden brown.
2. Next add milk to it and give it a good stir. Boil for 8-10 mins or until the vermicelli is cooked completely.
3. To prepare the caramelized sugar, take sugar in a pan. Keep stirring and cook on low flame until the sugar melts. Keep cooking until the sugar syrup turns golden brown.
4. Pour the caramelized sugar over the kheer and mix well. At this step you need to make sure that the kheer is super hot. If the kheer is cold, then the caramelized sugar will harden.
5. Keep stirring until everything is well combined. Simmer for 2 mins and keep aside.
6. Now, in a pan heat 1 tsp ghee and roast raisins and cashews until the cashews turn golden brown. Pour the dry fruits over the kheer. Add cardamom powder to the kheer and mix well.
7. Serve and enjoy caramelized vermicelli kheer piping hot or chilled.
