1 cup
2 cups
¾ cup
3 tbsp
Cashew nut
½ tsp
Food Color
One big pinch
Preparation Time: 2-3 minutes                                   Recipe Category: Dessert
Cooking time: 20-25 minutes                                      Recipe Cuisine:  Indian

Bring water to a boil in a separate pot.

Meanwhile, heat 2 tbsp of ghee in a heavy bottomed kadai/pan. Add cashew nuts and fry until the cashew nuts turn golden brown. Then add raisins and fry until they swell up. Transfer everything to a plate.

Add one more tbsp. of ghee to the kadai and  vermicelli/semiya to the same kadai and roast them lightly on medium flame.

Keep mixing/sautéing the semiya to avoid it from burning. Now add the boiling water to this and mix really well.

Reduce the flame and cover the kadai with lid and Cook for 10 minutes till the semiya/vermicelli is cooked and water is absorbed completely.

Now add sugar and mix well. Add the food color to the semiya.

The semiya will become little watery, now add the food color and mix well.

Continue cooking on medium flame until the mixture thickens and not too watery.

Finally add powdered elachi/cardamom powder, fried cashew nuts, raisins and mix well.

Switch off the stove and fluff well once warm.
Yes, delicious and tempting Vermicelli/Semiya Kesari is ready to be offered as neivedhyam or served as sweet for any special occasion.

I have added 3 tbsp of ghee, you can add 1 tbsp or 2 tbsp more of ghee for rich kesari.
I have added food color, you can replace it with saffron for natural food color.
Make sure the semiya/vermicelli is cooked thoroughly before adding the sugar.
