Happy Ugadi & Vermicelli Halwa


My ugadi wishes to everyone and here is a simple and quick halwa for the occasion. This delicious vermicelli halwa also fits my theme of "Sweet prasadam dishes under 30 minutes" of BM#14.

Ingredients:
1 cup vermicelli
2 cups milk
1/2 - 3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp cardamom powder
1 Tbsp ghee
1 Tbsp cashews
1 Tbsp raisins

Method:
* Toast the vermicelli on low flame until golden brown.
* Also toast the cashews and raisins in ghee and keep aside.
* Heat the milk and add the toasted vermicelli. Mix well so that no lumps are formed. Cook on low flame until the vermicelli is cooked.
* Add sugar and cardamom powder to the vermicelli. Cook until all the sugar melts and incorporates into the mixture.
* Add the toasted cashews and raisins to the cooked halwa and mix well.
