Seviya Delight




BM # 8   Day 2

Among the  ‘Nawabi’ Cuisines’ a lot of wheat seviya was used.The master chefs made  Kheers enriched with saffron and nuts.These seviyas are extensively used by the Sultaans too.The Arabic make special sweets using these fine vermicilli ,stuffing it with nuts and drizzling them with honey and ghee.From one such recipe I have adapted this simple ,yet rich Mithai which leaves a lingering taste and the desire to eat more.

Here goes the recipe.......
400gms.................condensed milk
200 gms................wheat seviya
250 gms................almonds,cashewnuts,pistachios
Itsp.........................pwd cardamon
Few strand saffron
1tbsp.....................ghee
1tbsp.....................honey(optional)


Roast the seviyas in ghee till pink.
Roast the nuts.
Put a pan to heat .
Put condensed milk,honey and saffron  in that pan.
As soon as it starts heating add the roasted seviya and nuts along with cardamon pwd.
Mix well.
The seviyas might break but that’s ok.
The seviyas will absorb all the condensed milk and you will find a big mass.
Turn this to a greased tray.
Let set for 10 -15 mins.
Cut into pieces while still warm. 
Garnish each piece with almond or pistas.
