Flavours from Eden: Dry Sevai

Dry Sevai for Eid!


  • 1/2 cup pistas
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1 packet vermicelli
  • Desi ghee to cook vermicelli
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup sugar syrup
  • A few cardamom pods
  • A pinch of saffron
  • A handful of khoya


  1. Blanch the almonds and pistas in water and boil them for 30 – 45 seconds. Peel the skin off the almonds and unshell the pistas. Slice both into thin slivers.
  2. Cook the vermicelli in desi ghee, until there is a brownish hue. Once done, take them off the heat and strain the excess oil out. Keep the vermicelli aside.

  7. Now add the final ingredient that is khoya. Grate a small piece into the kadhai and mix well.
