Sweet Noodles (Mithi Sev)

I am by far someone who delves into the world of Mithais, Barfis and Halwas and all the rest of it…But, now and then I do get cravings believe or not for something sweet! (I have my moments)

Mithi Sev: Sweet Noodles.
For this you normally would opt for Broken Wheat Noodles or Vermicelli.
Now, you can make this dish either with a liquid base, with Milk a bit like Kheer, or a bit like Halwa which would be slightly dry, which pairs well with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream! Yummy!

Don’t have any pictures yet, it’s purely because I don’t get a chance to take one, as soon as I’ve made it, it’s gone! So I have a picture of it I shall share it with you!

This is a nice recipe for your imagination to go pretty much wild! You can get very creative with this. From the flavour to the garnish, it’s totally up to you what your tummy is rumbling for!

The What:

  • 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil/Vegan Butter
  • 1/2 Cup Broken Wheat Noodles
  • A little under 1 Cup Water/Milk
  • 1/4 Cup Sugar

Flavour Boosters and Garnishes

  • Rose Syrup
  • Maple Syrup
  • Cocoa Powder
  • Chopped Nuts
  • Chopped Fruit or Berries
  • Cardamom Powder
  • Cinnamon Powder
  • Vanilla Flavouring

The How:

  • In a nonstick Pot, add the Coconut Oil/Butter and let it Melt
  • Add in the Broken Noodles and roast them on a low flame for 2 minutes or until they turn golden brown, be sure not to burn them!
  • Carefully add in the Water/Milk
  • Cover the lid half way, as there needs to be a vent for the liquid to evaporate.
  • Cook on Low to Medium flame until the liquid is almost evaporated. The time for this will vary, so you will need to just keep an eye on it. Also give it a light stir now and then to ensure it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot.
  • Now once all the liquid has evaporated it’s time for you to add Sugar and your choice of flavourings, such as Cocoa Powder, Cinnamon Powder, Cardamom Powder or Vanilla Flavouring.
  • Give everything a good mix
  • Cover half way and cook again until the Sugar Syrup turns thick.
  • And just like that, it’s done!
  • You can Garnish this with Nuts, Fruits and Berries or Maple/Rose Syrup.

Note: If you did want it Milky, then just add more Milk when you add in the Sugar.

It’s ready to Eat, Share and Enjoy!

Feel free to serve this with a scoop of your favourite Ice Cream
