In india there are numerous desserts that call for the use of vermicelli, but this simple dessert is a popular one in punjab. Traditionally, vermicelli was made at home, but now a variety of vermicelli are readily available at most stores. The kind that is absolutely right to use for this recipe is the slightly thicker one, which comes slightly roasted. A rather easy to make and uncomplicated dessert sukhi sevaiyan is one of my favourite punjabi recipes.
