Sweet Vermicelli

I’m never into sweets! In fact, I stay away from it most of the times… No matter how many cakes I bake in a week, I can’t handle anything sweet… more than a bit or spoon!!! But there are few things very close to my heart… and probably all those are traditional Indian type ;) I love GulabJamun, Peda, Sooji Halwa and yes… Sweet Vermicelli, which is also know as Meethi Seviyan!

My mum might have tried number of times to make me taste a spoonful at least… But nope, mein to mein hoon! I started liking it when I moved here. As I have said many times before that my hubby loves sweets… Any kind of sweets. And so while trying varieties for him, I started loving a few :P It’s a quick, simple, min ingredients dessert and of course, suits the festive season too :)
