After a long time , I am posting sweet recipe today. This barfi is extremely rich in taste and makes a perfect sweet for any festival. The authentic recipe calls for 1 cup besan + 1 cup coconut + 1 cup milk + 1 cup ghee + 3 cups sugar. In This I reduced  the sugar level and increase the besan and coconut  Quantities.. So here is the recipe with some changes I made along the way . If you look for something easy and yet elegant then try this burfi, just make sure the consistency is right

Maladus are very popular in Tamil Nadu. Call it a cousin of the Besan ladoo!!  Maladu is made from roasted chutney dhal (Pottukadalai).  This is very tasty sweet and easy to make.

Sweet paniyaram aka Neyyappam, a common prasadam in Kerala temples. This sweet is must on Gokulashtami and karthigai deepam.  I already posted unniappam recipe  in my blog. This is slightly different from that. You can make this  even 20 minutesKrishna Jayanthi is very near, try this recipe


 Rice flour                              1 cups

 Wheat Flour                          1/2 cup
 Jaggery                                150 gms
 Ripe banana -                       1 No.
 Coconut bits –                      1/4 cup
 Black sesame seeds              1½ Tbsp.
Green Elachi powder              1 Tbsp.
Baking soda                          1/3 Tsp.
Ghee -                                  1 Tbsp.

Coconut Oil /Cooking oil         For deep frying


  • Add a cup of water to jaggery and melt it. Strain the jaggery and let it cool.
  • Cut the banana and grind with 1 tbsp. of jaggery, till you get a smooth paste.
  • Fry the black sesame seeds and coconut bits in a ghee till it turns golden brown.
  • Take a big bowl, add the rice flour, wheat flour, banana gravy, baking soda and fried coconut bits ,black sesame seeds and melted jaggery. Mix well. Keep aside the batter for 30-45 mins
  • If the batter turns too thick after resting, add extra water to loosen it and stir well.
  • Heat the Unniappam mould, fill it ¾ of oil, pour the batter into mould.
  • When one side is cooked, using sharp ladle flip it.
  • Once appam is cooked, drain the oil and set aside.
  • Sometimes sugar is sprinkled on top to give that awesome black/brown and white contrast and add sweetness. Also it tastes far better if you take it after couple of days, instead of fresh.other

433: Kesari Seviyan /Sweet Vermicelli

Sweet vermicelli cooked to perfection with raisins and almonds, a great and quick dessert to be enjoyed with a cup of coffee or chai.  It is so simple to make and it tastes awesome. It tastes even better when topped with khoa.  I made this dish in less fat and less sugar, if you want more taste, you can add more sugar and ghee.

Vermicelli ( Thin ones)            1 cup
Water                                   1 cup
Sugar                                    ½ cup
Crushed Green Cardamoms       4 no.
Ghee                                     1 tbsp+1 tsp.
Fried Raisins & Cashews           for Garnishing
Kesar color                             a pinch

  • In a pan put one teaspoon ghee and fry the vermicelli till light brown.  Constantly stir it to ensure even browning. Keep aside.

  • In the same pan add one tsp of ghee and fry the cashew nuts and raisins. Keep aside.
  • Take a frying pan, add water and bring into boil.
  • Now add the fried vermicelli and cook till soft.

  • Now add sugar,crushed cardamons and color in it. Mix it well.
  • Cook till it thickens in low flame.
  • Add remaining ghee and stir thoroughly and make sure and water is completely absorbed.
  • Garnish with fried cashew nuts, and raisins.
  • Transfer it to a glass bowl.
  • Serve hot chilled with tea or as snacks.

  • For Health reasons, I made this dish in less fat and less sugar.  You can add khoya  or milkmaid for more creamy tasty. If you want more taste, you can add more sugar and ghee.
  • Instead of water, you can add whole milk also.

Sweet, Vermicelli, Kesari
