Vermicelli Kheer: Nutritious Dessert
- 1 Liter (1 quart plus 4 Tbsp.) whole milk
- 1 cup dried fruits, any combination you like
- 1¼ cup sugar
- 2-3 Tbsp ghee (Indian clarified butter) or regular unsalted butter
- 1 package thin Vermicelli (seviyan) broken into pieces if long
- ¼ tsp ground cardamom
Heat milk in a pan over medium heat. Add chopped dried fruits and sugar and stir to dissolve the sugar. On another burner, melt ghee/butter in a pan. When melted, add the vermicelli to it and fry, stirring, until it turns golden brown. As soon as the milk comes to a boil, add the fried vermicelli into it and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Add ground cardamom into kheer, mix it well and serve hot.
