Dairy Free Vermicelli Kheer

We kick start this week with yet another sweet and creamy dessert that will leave you craving for more. What makes this special is that it is dairy free. Vermicelli Kheer is a traditional dessert in every Indian household. My hope is that this recipe is an eye-opener for all the readers that think that Indian desserts cannot be prepared in a vegan way.

 There are several healthy replacements for milk and as long as you have ready access to one of them, you can make a vegan vermicelli kheer garnished with fried golden cashews and saffron flakes.

Dairy free Vermicelli KheerDo not let the name deceive you. Vermicelli is also known as Semiya or Seviya in the South. But they are just the same. Vermicelli kheer is basically prepared with vermicelli strands, milk, and sugar with a little prep work required for the vermicelli. They are usually roasted in butter before simmering them in milk. My vegan version replaces the regular butter with the vegan butter and replaces milk with soy milk. Apart from that the rest of the procedure is pretty much same as the regular kheer. A sweet and creamy dessert ready in less than 30 minutes! Vermicelli Kheer can be enjoyed warm or cold. I like it served cold, especially in the summer. Try it tonight or on a special occasion!
