Meethi Seviyan - Vermicelli Kheer

Meethi Seviyan – Vermicelli Kheer can be enjoyed during any festive occasion. In fact this is my go- to recipe if I have some unexpected guests- not only it cooks up fast it’s an all time favorite classic Indian recipe. Thin threads of vermicelli are boiled with milk, sugar and dry mawa powder until well blended and tender. Mawa powder adds that richness and flavor to this recipe but if no dry mawa powder on hand; substitute it with milk powder or you can choose to leave it out entirely – will do no harm to the recipe.

This recipe/dessert can be enjoyed hot or cold. My kids like it cold so once its cooled down completely, transfer it to a container and allow it to sit in the refrigerator for 4-5 hours or until chilled. Since I have picky eaters in my house I loaded this recipe up with nuts and raisins but as per one’s preference you can choose to go easy on them. 

Whether making it for a small group or a large LANGAR we have got you covered. This must-have Baisakhi recipe is quick and easy to prepare and it’s under 30 minute recipe. If making for a large group just change the serving size below from 6 to 150 or 300 and see this recipe multiply.
