What are Meethi Seviyan?

Vermicelli cooked in sugar syrup to make a dessert absolutely delicious. Meethi semiya is more about patience than ingredients and instructions. You need to let the semiya sit so that the sugar syrup gets absorbed. It is a simple and easy dessert which calls for very few ingredients.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Meethi Seviyan Recipe

Variety of vermicelli are available these days made up of wheat, all purpose flour, semolina etc. I choose the one made up of semolina or durum wheat. You can pick any of your choice. Even roasted vermicelli is available and these days I am using that one. However when I prepared Meethi Semiya Recipe for the blog I had the unroasted ones so I roasted them and then proceeded with the recipe. For flavouring I have added cardamom powder. You can also add desiccated coconut/dry fruits/rose petals etc.
Other vermicelli/seviyan desserts on the blog are sheer khurma, seviyan ki kheer.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
