Sevai kheer

Kheer is a sweet dish that is usually made during auspicious occasions. I still remember making this as my first dish after my wedding. You cannot go wrong with this dish.

I like to add a little sago along with vermicelli while making this.


What you need:

3 cups whole milk

2/3 cup roasted vermicelli

1/2 cup condensed milk

3 tbsp sugar

3 cardamom

1/4 cup soaked sago

4-5 cashews

10-12 raisins

1/2 tsp ghee/clarified butter.


– In a saucepan, add milk, condensed milk, cardamom & sugar.



– Bring to boil. Keep sago ready. (Soak sago for 1 hour, then drain the water & keep it covered for 5 hours)


– Once milk starts boiling, add sago & vermicelli.


– Cook for 10 mins.

– Meanwhile, in a temper pan, add 1/2 tsp ghee.


– Once hot, add cashews & raisins. Cashews to brown & raisins will puff up.



– After 10 mins, take it off the heat & add cashews and raisins. Serve.



* I used already roasted vermicelli. For the vermicelli that is not roasted, roast it in a pan until browned before adding it in the milk.
