Semiya Kesari - सेमिया केसरी (Vermicelli Pudding) - April Blog Hop

Hello Friends,

Here is my late entry for April Blog Hop. Another apology to Radhika and Gayatri.

Gayatri has this amazing collection of recipes. But, I specially wanted to try this one as I had created pudding out of semiya, but never a kesari, so it intrigued me and I have to say it didn't disappoint :)

Semiya Kesari - सेमिया केसरी (Vermicelli Pudding)

Semiya (Vermicelli) - 1 cup
Milk (I used Skim) - 2 cups
Sugar - 3/4 cup
Ghee - 1/3 cup 
Saffron - a couple of strands
Saffron Food Color - 2 pinches (optional)
Cardamom Powder - 1/2 tsp
Broken Cashew Nuts - 1 tbsp
Golden Raisins - 1 tsbp
  • Lightly roast semiya in about 1 tbsp of ghee. Keep it aside.
  • In 2 tsp ghee, fry raisins till they are plump and cashew nuts till they are nice and golden (separately).
  • Soak saffron in a tbsp of warm milk.
  • Boil milk and add vermicelli to it and mix well.
  • Once milk is all absorbed, add sugar and cardamom powder to it.
  • When sugar is all melt, add all the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
  • Cook for another 2-3 minutes (mixing frequently).
  • Serve it warm.

Served it as dessert. I always serve warm as that is how we prefer in our house.

Do check what other blog hoppers made for April Blog Hop.

That's all for now. Take care till next post.
