  • in the same pot , add vermicelli and roast on medium flame until fragrant.
  • add 3 cups of hot milk and cook the vermicelli on medium flame.
  • keep stirring once in a while to avoid burning.
  • cook until the vermicelli is soft and the mixture has thickened.
  • add condensed milk ( I have used a full tin , but adjust the sweetness as per your taste).
  • mix well and cook for another 5 mins on low flame.
  • add nuts and cardamom powder. Give a good mix.
  • chill the kheer.
  • at the time of serving , portion kheer into individual bowls , top it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream , drizzle a teaspoon of rose syrup (roohafza) and top it with some nuts.
  • More milk can be added after the kheer has cooled down and if it’s too thick.
