Sev nu Biranj

A super-duper festive season started… And I’ve decided to make wonderful dishes every single day for this whole week! I’m not too sure if I would be able to post on daily basis but will surely share it sooner or later :) Yesterday only we had a phone-call at home and they reminded us that it was Ekadashi yesterday… I immediately took out all the diyas I painted last year and put them all around home at night :) Who says I can’t enjoy Diwali here?

It all takes me back to those childhood days… I told you many times that I used to be a picky-eater (which I still am at times) :P Never a sweet-lover but one thing I always enjoyed eating was ‘Sev nu Biranj’!!! Mum used to make it every now n then for me… And today, I have to make it by myself :( Thought of making some sweets this Diwali… And started with hubby’s favorite Dudhpaak :) And planning to make this one sometime this week… Why don’t you try it out too???

STEPS TO FOLLOW:

  1. Heat ghee in a heavy bottomed pan and fry almonds-cashews in it for a while.
  2. Take them out on absorbent paper, roughly chop them together and keep aside.
  3. Add vermicelli to the pan now and roast it until golden brown in color (approx 5 mins).
  4. After that, add boiling milk to it. Be extra-careful while doing it!!!
  5. Now let the vermicelli get cooked on low flame (approx 5-7 mins).
  6. Once you find milk completely evaporated, add powdered sugar stirring it continuously.
  7. Add cardamom powder, chopped nuts and mix well.
  8. Spread the mix on greased plate and cool it down a bit before cutting into squares.

SJ’s NOTE:

  • I like them in fudge texture but in case if you want to serve it as a semi-solid sweet, add 1/4 cup milk more to it.
  • You can add your favorite nuts for extra crunch :)
