Sweet Vermicelli Recipe for Eid | Eid Desserts
Sweet roasted vermicelli is a delicious sweet dish made mostly during Eid, there are many ways to prepare this dessert but I prefer this vermicelli very soft instead of separate.
There are also different toppings that you can add and the common ones are mawa/ khoya, dry coconut and silver foil.
So here the recipe for a quick Eid dessert.
1 cup fine vermicelli
1 cup sugar (add more or less to your taste)
1 tbs ghee
1 tsp cardamom powder
1/4 cup chopped dry fruits
2 cups water
1/2 tsp rose water
Silver foil for decoration
Start by adding the ghee to a nonstick pan and brown the vermicelli on a very low heat, make sure it does not burn. Once its brown remove it with a slotted spoon so there is ghee left in the pan.
Keep it on a plate to cool for 5 min.
In the same pan fry the dry fruits and then add in 2 cups water along with the cardamom powder.
Once the water is about to boil add in the brown vermicelli and the sugar, cook on a medium heat and cover for 2 min if you want it a bit soft a slightly mushy.
If you want the vermicelli to be separate do not keep the heat on low and allow to cook without a lid, once the sugar dissolves and the water has dried your dish is ready.
It is best of you remove it from the heat and place the vermicelli on a plate for 2/3 min before serving. Most of the time there is a tendency for vermicelli to get very mushy if kept in the same pan.
Decorate with silver foil and then your done !
