Total Time : 40 Min


Serves : 4
  • 250 gms brown vermicelli crushed into bits

  • 2-3 tbsp ghee

  • 1/2 tsp cardamom powder

  • 2 1/2 cups water

  • 1/4 cups charoli

  • 1/4 cups raisins

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence

  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg powder

  • 1 cups sugar


  • 1. In a heavy bottom vessel melt 2 tbsp ghee or oil and fry the chopped mixed dry fruits on low flame. 
  • 2 Remove and keep aside on a paper towel to drain and absorb the oil.
  • 3. Now add 1 tbsp ghee to the pan and fry the vermicelli till it gets to a darkish brown colour. Roast on slow flame to not let it burn. 
  • 4. In another vessel combine water sugar and essence and bring to a boil to make a chasni. 
  • 5. . Add Nutmeg powder and cardamon powder to the sev. 
  • 6. Now comes the tricky part. You need to slowly add a little bit of water to the sev and cook with a lid on till the water dries up.
  • 7. . Repeat the process. Add little chasni again to the sev. Then stir with a light hand and cover with the lid.  This will ensure that the sev gets cooked well without sticking together. 
  • 8. Complete the steps 2-4 times more till the sugar water is over. You will see the sev swell and get cooked. 
  • 9. Now Garnish with the fried charoli and kishmish and enjoy this much relished dish.
