Vermicelli, for the unversed, are a popular kind of extremely thin rice noodles which are commonly used in Asian cooking. Also called seviyan, I had thought that vermicelli could only be used as a dessert ingredient for kheer. Kheer, for those untouched by the phenomenon, is a milky Indian pudding that is sweet. It was only sometime back that I learned about vermicelli being a great savoury snack item too. A friend of mine brought a spicy vegetable vermicelli and I can't say I didn't like it. However, if you're still stuck at kheer wali seviyan, there are plenty of other desserts you can make with vermicelli too. Here are some of them to try.
