Vermicelli Kheer - Happy Mothers Day



“I regard no man as poor who has a godly mother.” - Abraham Lincoln.... Happy Mothers Day to U all...

    Vermicelli Kheer my mom's favorite Indian dessert.I made this today for her though she is not staying with me now..i shared the pictures with her :) But next to my Mom the only Caring and lovable person to me - My Hubby.So i surprised him with this heavenly kheer in the morning as soon as he wakes up :). He was happy .Few words about my Mom on this special day...I can say that My Mom is one of the bestest Mom n Woman in the world.She is more talented and she struggled lot to brought up me n my sister.She faced n still facing so many problems with my dad's family n relatives...she is living for us.After my marriage she was totally depressed ..as i left her n now after my sister's marriage again she was left alone.She was physically n mentally more tired ;(  Her only relaxation is my skype call through which she can see me n her grandsons..so daily i use to spare at least some 30 minutes for her.
Respect your parents n understand their feelings in their old age.When I was pregnant..really for the first time in my life i am able to understand the Meaning of a Mom n able to fee the pain n struggle she faced to brought up us.When i became a Mom....i was so so happy n that moment felt proud to born as a woman.Once again happy mothers day to all.Mom n to be a Mom is the greatest assert in my life n the precious gift given by the Almighty.Happy Momming :)

Coming to the recipe...i referred sanjeev kapoor's vermicelli kheer recipe.

Ingredients
  1. Vermicelli    1/4 cup
  2. Milk    3 and 1/2 cups(i used 1% low fat milk)
  3. Sweetened condensed milk    1/2 of a 8 oz can
  4. Cardamom powder   1 tsp
  5. Ghee/butter     1 tbsp
  6. Raisins     10 no.s
  7. Cashewnuts     10-12 no.s
  8. Almonds    7 no.s(blanched n sliced)
  9. Cashew nut powder    1-2 tbsp(coarsely powdered cashew nuts)
Method
  • Heat a tbsp of ghee in a nonstick vessel and fry the cashew nuts and raisins separately and keep aside.
  • In the same pan.roast the vermicelli till flavor n turns light golden brown and keep aside.
  • In the same vessel add 3 and 1/2 cups of milk and allow to boil.
  • When it starts boiling add the roasted vermicelli and keep stirring to prevent get burnt at the bottom.
  • After 2-3 minutes add the sweetened condensed milk and stir well.
  • After 1 minute add the cashew nut powder and cardamom powder(or crush 3-4 whole cardamoms) and keep stirring until the desired consistency.
  • Lastly add the ghee roasted cashews n raisins and also some blanched almonds.
  • Mix well and remove from the stove.
  • Delicious vermicelli kheer is now ready.Serve warm or chilled.I like the chilled one...

I didn't add sugar...the sweet of condensed milk is enough to me..if u want you can add some sugar along with condensed milk as in the original recipe.This time the vermicelli which i bought was too thin n short than the regular .because of light problem not able to take clear pictures of the kheer :( ...sorry !!

  20. Better late than Never- so i wish all the mothers a very belated mother's day. since i live close to sangeetha's house i know how much care n effort she takes for her Husband n kids. I like the yummy kheer n its too tempting to prepare it soon.Sangeetha has attracted all the viewers thru her interest in posting variety of recipes in the blog n effort in excellent preparation!Only when we lead a family we will know the value of our parents esp MOM cos no one is equal to our mom's love n care in this world.Lets all be more loving n caring to our family.
