Meethi Seviyan (Sweet Vermicelli)

This is a very simple recipe and is very common in Pakistan. Most of the people cook meethi seviyan on Eid ul Fitr. When we were young, we used to recite a verse which goes `Eidul Fitr-khadian seviyan tey latha fikr` (It is Eid ul Fitr today we have eaten sweet vermicelli and are now free of all problems). I love this saying and have taught this to my kids as well. You can enjoy this sweet seviyan as a dessert after finishing a heavy meal or serve it to your friends as an appetizer. So, if you are ready to give everyone a treat, try this easy recipe and enjoy!
