INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Rose flavored meethi seviyan: Heat 1 tbsp ghee in a large skillet over medium heat. Tip in the broken vermicelli and roast till golden, stirring continuously.
  2. Pour in the milk and allow the vermicelli to cook, 4-5 minutes.
  3. Then add cardamom powder, rose syrup, sugar and the second tablespoon of ghee. Stir well to incorporate. The sugar and ghee will melt and turn the vermicelli glossy. Remove from flame when this mixture is fairly dry. Cool slightly. (This meethi seviyan can be served as such topped with nuts and raisins.)
