Vermicelli Pudding Kheer (Sevai Kheer)


Vermicelli Pudding Kheer

Vermicelli Pudding Kheer is a sweet and comforting Indian dessert made by cooking roasted vermicelli with dairy-free milk.

It’s really easy to put together with a minimal list of ingredients and simple cooking directions.

Vermicelli is typically sold as roasted OR unroasted. If you purchase roasted vermicelli, you just have to stir-saute for about a minute or so.

Unroasted vermicelli has to be sauteed for 6-7 minutes or until it turns golden-brown.

I use coconut oil for this process. You can dry-saute if you wish.

Chopped nuts + raisins + cardamom powder make this dish nutritious, texture-ous, and flavorful!

I’ve also used a few saffron strands for the mild color and subtle flavor. If you don’t have one in hand, consider skipping it.
