Semiya Kesari / Vermicelli Pudding

I thought i'd share this simple sweet dish.I make it whenever i have sweet cravings as this is something you can whip up in just a few minutes and no fancy stuff needed to make it.


I won my second gift -Rajasthani cooking by Tarla Dalal.Thanks to Gayathri for choosing me winner.Thanks to all my lovely friends for supporting me and this tiny little blog of mine!



This dish only substitutes rawa/semolina in the usual kesari.But tastes just as good as the usual kesari.



You need
Vermicelli 1 cup
Water 1 and half cups
Sugar about 3/4th a cup
Yellow food color/saffron soaked in milk
Salt a pinch
Ghee 1 tablespoon
Dry fruits - cashews and raisins
Crushed cardamom seeds of 2 cardamoms


  • Roast the vermicelli with a little ghee in a pan until translucent and set aside.In the same pan, roast the dry fruits and set aside.
  • Heat the pan, add the remaining ghee add the crushed cardamom seeds, now add the water and let this come to a boil.
  • Add the sugar, a pinch of salt and let it dissolve completely before adding the roasted nuts and raisins and the vermicelli.Cook this until all the water is absorbed by the vermicelli.



  • Fluff the vermicelli with a fork and serve cool or hot.
