How to make Kimami Sewai?

  1. In the Meyer Accent series Dutch casserole add desi ghee & roast the vermicelli on medium flame (we used Banarasi sewai). Once done, keep aside. 
  2. In the same pan add desi ghee and roast the dry fruits. Let's start by roasting the fox-nut followed by almonds, coconut, cashew, pistachio, chironji & raisins, once these are done, keep them aside. 
  3. Now in that same pot add sugar and milk and keep stirring until milk starts to curdle in case it doesn’t get curdled you can add 1-2 drops of lemon juice.
  4. Now add the khoya, dry-fruits and saffron and let it cook for 5 mins.
  5. Add vermicelli & cardamom powder mix well and cover it with a lid then close the flame and let it rest for about half an hour.
  6. After resting for 30 minutes, the Kimami Sewai is ready. Serve and enjoy.

Expert Tips

  1. Using the same pan throughout the recipe increases the flavor of the dish. Each step adds a layer of oils and flavors that helps in making the dish irresistible.
  2. Use fresh dry fruits as they have more flavor and oils in them.
  3. We recommend using a heavy bottom pan like the Meyer Accent series Dutch casserole as it makes sure the pan stays hot and there is even heating throughout the surface of the pan.
