Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 20 to 25 mins
Serves : 4


Seviyan / Vermicelli - 1 cup break it into small pieces
Water - 2 cup
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Ghee - 2 tblspn
Nuts - 1/4 cup ( I used cashews, walnuts, pista)
Cardamom Powder - 1/2 tsp
Saffron a pinch


Heat ghee in a kadai. Add in nuts and fry till golden. Remove it to a bowl.

Now in the same ghee, Add in vermicelli roast till golden.

Now add in water and cover and simmer for 10  mins till it is cooked. The seviyan should never get completely dry, there should be some water left in it, if not add few tblspn of water. So when you add sugar the seviyan doesn't get hard.

  1. Can we use milk instead of water?

  2. @Anonymousofcourse you can add milk instead of water

  3. Hi ,i love all your recipes. your kadappa recipe is our family's favorite.
    can i add Jaggery or palm sugar instead of regular sugar?

  4. Is the pan you use is a ceramic pan ...?
    Is it a good alternate to non stick pan...becoz I m fed up with nonstick ones ,the coat goes off even when I ues it very carefully...?
    Give me a suggestion for a long lasting non stick pan ..

    1. it is wonderchef pan. not ceramic. For nonstick dont use metal spoon. DOnt scrub with metal scrubber use a sponge.

    2. Yes I m using wooden laddie, scrub with sponge...doesn't give the pan to maids to clean...but in vain..
      Suggest me a good brand.
      Thanks dear..

    3. u can go for prestige or hawkins
