Vermicelli Custard Recipe

Semiya Custard | Sevai Custard Recipe

Vermicelli custard is a dish made with a combination of custard powder, fruits, milk, and vermicelli. Vermicelli custard recipe can easily be prepared in only 15 min.

Vermicelli custard is also known as Sevai Custard or Sevai Custard Falooda.

Generally, vermicelli is used for the preparation of kheer, but I have prepared custard with vermicelli and mixed seasonal fruits.

Custard powder is cornstarch or cornflour with flavouring ingredients added to it.

Youngsters are very fond of vermicelli custard. It can be used as a dessert as it is liked for its creamy and flavoured taste. Vermicelli custard has low calories.

We may add more fruits to make it more colourful. Vermicelli custard is enjoyed in two ways i.e. hot or cold, but I prefer chilled vermicelli custard as chilled vermicelli custard gives an immense taste.

It may be served and enjoyed in any type of family occasion and celebration.
