. Firstly keep all the ingredients ready for the seviyan. break the seviyan and keep aside.
. Chop the dry fruits and place aside.
. Heat a pan and then add 1 tbsp ghee.
. Let the ghee melt and then add 1 cup of the broken seviyan.
. On a low to medium flame, with frequent stirring roast the seviyan till they become golden. since i used pre roasted seviyan, i didn’t have to roast the seviyan much. however, if you use seviyan which is not roasted, then you will need to roast for some more time.
. Add all the chopped dry fruits and raisins. stir them nicely.
. Lower the flame and pour 2 cups of milk. instead of milk you can also add water.
. Stir and mix very well. then continue to stir for 2 to 3 minutes.
. Now add ¼ cup of sugar. keep stirring the mixture.
. Add ¼ cup of milk powder. if you do not have milk powder, then just skip it. mix again
. Sprinkle ½ tsp cardamom powder and stir well.
. The mixture will start thickening and the seviyan will also begin to absorb milk. when all the milk has been absorbed, switch off the gas.
. Serve meethi seviyan hot or warm or chilled.
