    This next dish is a sweet dish, its very easy and quick to make, always comes in handy if you have an unexpected guest :wink:

    Semiya...

    Ingredients:

    Vermicelli - 200 gms
    Milk - 4 cups
    Condensed Milk - 1/4 cup (optional)
    Sugar - 8 tbsp or as needed
    Cardamom powder - 1/4 tsp
    Ghee - 2 tbsp
    Cashew nuts - 1/4 cup
    Raisins - 1/4 cup

    Lets start cooking...

    Method

    Heat half a table spoon ghee and fry raisins and cashews and keep it aside. Fry the vermicelli (very thin rice noodles) in the remaining ghee till it is golden brown. Add 4 cups of boiled milk. Keep stirring occasionally. Once the vermicelli becomes soft, add the condensed milk or sugar as needed. Let it simmer. Once its thickned add cardamom powder and stir well. Finally add the fried cashew nuts and raisins.

    Your semiya dish is ready and can be served hot or cold.

    Enjoy.... :)

    Sawine

    :salam2:

    In Trinidad we call it sawine. It is the number one delicacy for Eid. Some people put peanut butter to flavor it but I like it plain. Dehydrated fruits are also added like cherries etc. Nice dish, in fact I may just make some right now!!!!
