Vermicelli Kheer

Good Morning :) Today's recipe to be learnt is the most famous and favorite of all I can say "Vermicelli Kheer" :) I made it long back and took pictures of it, but posting it now.I know it is a common recipe and everybody knows to make it. But still I want to post it as my enthusiasm level is high these days to post recipes here and articles on my personal blog too. :) :)

Taking you towards the making of Kheer:

Ingredients (Serves 7-8 glasses of kheer)

Around 2 cups of Vermicelli
7-8 tsp of sugar (you can add more or less based on what you require)
1 tsp of ghee
1/2 a liter of milk
2 tbsp sweetened milkmaid (optional)
Saffron (Kesar) strands (for coloring)
1 tsp Cardomom seeds
Cashewnuts and dried grapes for garnishing (You can add how much ever you like)

Note: You can add coconut milk and jaggery instead of milk and sugar. It becomes even more tasty.


Take 1 tsp ghee in a vessel and roast the vermicelli for only 5 minutes on a medium flame.

It should be just about to turn brown. (Lightest brown color)

Then add the milk to the vermicelli.

Let it come to a boil. Keep it on a low flame.

After it starts boiling add sugar, milkmaid, cardomom seeds.

Keep stiring it so that the vermicelli doesn't stick underneath in the vessel.

When the vermicelli boils it will be soft.

In the mean time put 2 tsp of hot water to the saffron strands and keep it aside.

Now roast the roasted cashews, dried grapes with 1 tsp of ghee and add it to the kheer.

Add saffron water to the kheer and mix well.

The kheer needs to be served hot :)

So that is your kheer :)
Take care :) Till I write. :)

Happy cooking :)
