About Vermicelli halwa ( Meethi Semai ka halwa) Recipe

Eggless dessert. This dish brings back my childhood memories. There was my one aunty who always brought me this Semai halwa whenever she cooked. We all must have had Semai kheer but Semai halwa is another sweet preparation. It is quick, easy and requires less ghee. This is one of my favorite desserts. Inspiration for this dish is my Aunty.

Ingredients to make Vermicelli halwa ( Meethi Semai ka halwa)

  • 1 cup seviyan/vermicelli broken in small pieces
  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter or ghee
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 tbsp chopped cashews
  • 20-24 raisins
  • 1/2 tsp Cardamon powder
  • 1/2 tsp edible food color or 2-3 strands of saffron

How to make Vermicelli halwa ( Meethi Semai ka halwa)

  1. Heat a pan and add ghee to it. Add vermicelli into the pan and saute it on low medium heat till it turns light brown. Remove the roasted vermicelli from the pan. There will be some ghee still remaining on the pan.
  2. Saute cashews and raisins in the same pan till the cashews turn light golden. Remove and keep it aside.
  3. Now add 3 cups of water in the same pan and bring it to a boil on medium heat. Add the vermicelli into the hot water and let it cook till it becomes soft. Add sugar and food color or crushed saffron.
  4. When the vermicelli is cooked add the cardamom powder. Stir and mix.
  5. Cook till the sugar dissolves . Do not overcook as the vermicelli will harden on cooling. So take off the vermicelli halwa as soon as the sugar dissolves.
  6. Serve the vermicelli halwa hot in a bowl and garnish it with sautéed cashews and raisins.
