A perfect dessert to serve a special guest, or to commemorate a special Occasion at home, the Sev Biranj is a delectable preparation of ghee-roasted vermicelli cooked in milk, sweetened and flavoured with saffron and cardamom.

With the rich and intense flavour of milk and spices, this dish also has a very interesting mouth-feel, with the crisp yet soft texture of roasted and cooked vermicelli.

Serve it fresh off the stove, with a garnish of slivered nuts and raisins too, if you’d like. Sev Biranj is also a festive recipe that is made in many homes during the festival of Holi .
