Sugar free Seviyan with Strawberry Syrup - Recipe

8:37 PM

In my home town Uttar Pradesh Eid is never complete without seviyan and even in Bangalore my mom keeps the tradition alive by cooking at least a little bit of seviyan on both Eids (Eid-Ul zuha and Eid-ul- adha) along with other dessert delicacies like gajar ka halwa, phirni and gulab jamun.
When Sugarfree Natura wanted us to recreate a favorite dessert recipe I decided to recreate seviyan kheer because I wanted to see how this delicacy tastes when sugar is substituted with sugar free natura and also because making seviyan is super simple ;) .

There are two kinds of vermicelli available the thin and thick ones and these may come roasted or un roasted. Payasam in South India is cooked with the thicker vermicelli but my mom always uses the long thin roasted vermicelli to make seviyan and I decided to the mom route and used the thin version in this recipe. This vermicelli is then slow cooked in toned milk and garnished with roasted cashew nuts and almonds. My mom also adds cardamom powder and saffron to the recipe but I skipped saffron and added sugar free strawberry syrup because I like a bit of pink splash in my seviyan . I also skip raisins and pistas because I dont like the cooked taste of these dry fruits. I am going to share recipe for strawberry sugarfree syrup also in this post with which you can garnish this seviyan .
