Preparation Method :

  • To make the khoya, bring the milk to the boil in a large heavy saucepan, watch carefully.
  • Lower the heat and simmer for 30 minutes, stir occasionally, until the milk is reduced to a quarter of its volume. The milk should resemble a sticky, soft dough.
  • Heat the ghee in a heavy-based saucepan and fry the vermicelli for about 1 minute, stir continuously to prevent burning. Set aside.
  • Blend the khoya with the evaporated milk, saffron and add to the vermicelli, return to the heat and stir around for another 3 minutes. Transfer to a serving dish.
  • Boil the sugar and water together until reduced by almost half, thick and syrupy.
  • Pour this syrup over the sevian and serve hot, decorated with flaked almonds and slivered pistachio nuts.
