Seviyan (Sweet Vermicelli)

Eid is incomplete without seviyan and sheer khurma. Seviyan is an important part of breakfast on Eid and is also served to guests. There are many variants to seviyan. Some are fried, some are prepared with milk, some with cream. I like the fried version and here it is 🙂 Check out other dessert recipe and Eid recipes on Cukzy.
