Pearl Millet Meethi Seviyan/Pearl Millet Sweet Vermicelli

Meethi Seviyan is an Indian dessert made during festival days, seviyan means vermicelli and Meetha/Meethi/Mithi means sweet hence the name of the dish 'Meetha Seviyan'.Vermicelli, these thin hair like spaghetti used in Indian cuisine for making both savoury and sweet dishes. Sweet vermicelli makes an excellent dessert as well and the cooking process of this sweet goes for simple preparation. Well roasted vermicelli cooked with sugar syrup and topped with varieties of nuts. This sweet is made specially during the holy ramadan days.Coming to this Meetha seviyan, this sweet is prepared with both sugar and jaggery, i opted for jaggery. We loved it to the core and the jaggery syrup added to make this sweet gives an incredible taste and colour to this simple sweet.

A bowl of this sweet served warm or chilled will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth.Instead of using the usual vermicelli, i tried this delicious sweet with pearl millet vermicelli which i bought in India, trust me none will find out that this seviyan is made with a millet vermicelli. My kids enjoyed this sweet when they were warm and hubby liked it when i served chilled. Obviously this seviyan can be served both warm and chilled. Am running this week's blogging marathon with an interesting theme called Kid's delight - Cooking with wholegrains, needless to say that this seviyan is going to be a part of this week's theme.Sending to Srivalli's Kid's delight - Cooking with Wholegrains hosted by Kalyani.
