Semiya Kesari | Vermicelli Kesari | Seviyan Kesari

Semiya Kesari, an easy to make sweet recipe that you can prepare in a jiffy when you have an unexpected guests  or it's a quick fix for your sudden sweet craving.I had this semiya kesari zillion times as evening snack during my schooldays. I had seen my mom made this in minutes and in those days i even prefer this kesari over rava kesari.The preparation of this keasri is almost similar to rava kesari,but here you no need to worry about lumps formation,even beginers can make this kesari prefectly at first time without any fuss.And the other thing i like about this kesari is it doesn't need much sugar & ghee like rava kesari.Even with little sugar and ghee, it taste absolutely delicious.

  • I like my semiya to cook as soft yet retain its shape, if you want mushy semiya,add extra 1/4 cup of water and cook little more.
  • In addition to cardamom, you can use few strand of saffron to enhance the flavor.
  • I used MTR variety of semiya.
