semolina vermicelli kesari--- a guest post

Hello all! Today I welcome an amazing baker and equally amazing cook and one enthusiastic learner for Hindi. She is Viji from virunthu unna vaanga. So lets hear what she has to say about herself and her yummy and innovative recipe.


Hi dear friends, am so happy to be here as a guest, and this is my first guest post, really
I proud to give my first guest post to Meenu dear… I got her friendship through Divy’s
SNC Challenge… Thanks Divy for the opportunity to earned many lovable friends…
Meenu is so humorous and I love her recipes and her volunteer helps for us in many
moments… Thank U Meenu… N especially now she is hindi teacher to me …

Am Vijayalakshmi dharmaraj (Viji), I have completed my studies and at present am
enjoying with my parents n brother and I love to cook more than eating… After I enter
into the blog world cooking is turned to my passion… n I learned many recipes from my
blogger friends too… U can see my more recipes at VIRUNTHU UNNA VAANGA


I wish to do the guest post with sweet/dessert… So I tried SEMOLINA VERMECELLI
KESARI… Mostly you can see or had separately like semolina kesari or vermicelli
kesari… But I combined both and prepared this delicious kesari which is turned very
well… So I like to give visual treat to Meenu and all the blogger friends and readers….


  • Vermicelli – 1 cup
  • Semolina – ½ cup
  • Water – 3 cups
  • Food color – a pinch
  • Crushed cardamom – 5
  • Salt – a pinch
  • Sugar – 1 cup
  • Cashew nuts – 10
  • Raisins – 10
  • Ghee – 1 Tsp
  • Oil – 1 Tbsp

Heat pan add 1 Tsp of ghee and fried the cashew nuts and raisins and keep it
aside. In the same pan add 3 cups of water, food color and crushed cardamom and bring
it to boil.Now mix semolina and stir well for 1 minute.Then add vermicelli to the mixture and stir well and allow it to cook for 2 minutes or till semi thicken. Add 1 cup of sugar and mix well till it gets thicken. Add 1 Tbsp of oil to it and stir well and switch off the flame and stand by for 5 minutes. Now serve it hot…

 You can pour this hot kesari into the greased plate and cut it into any shape.
 You can pour boiled milk instead of water to get extra rich taste.

Here is step by step pic of the yummy recipe.
