vermicelli pudding recipe | nawabi semai recipe | nawabi sawai dessert with step by step photo and video recipe. vermicelli or semai is the source for various easy and complex dessert recipes in indian cuisine. generally, it is cooked with a combination of milk or mawa/khoya to make a creamy and rich dessert recipe. but then there is this vermicelli pudding recipe or also known as nawabi semai which is prepared by layering vermicelli noodles and custard milk is known for its subtle sweetness.

i have prepared a vermicelli custard recipe previously which is basically an extension of the fruit custard recipe. but this recipe of vermicelli pudding or nawabi sawai is a unique recipe. even though there is significant use of custard milk in this recipe, it is totally different from vermicelli custard. firstly, the vermicelli noodles are crunchy and are not soaked or cooked with custard. therefore, when served you would still feel the crunchiness of thin vermicelli noodles. secondly, the noodles and custard is layered one after the other and then set in the refrigerator. this makes it like a thick cake and even when served it holds its shape. hence, if you assume it is just another type of custard recipe, you should try this recipe once and then judge it.

furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variants to the nawabi semai recipe. firstly, i have specifically used thin and long vermicelli noodles for this recipe. it is easy to manage, roast and layer which should easily hold its shape. yet, if you find it difficult to get it, you may still use the bambino vermicelli. secondly, i have specifically used vanilla flavoured custard powder for this recipe. you can easily find it in your local store or may refer to my previous recipe to prepare custard powder. lastly, i have layered it in a large rectangular glass container, which is easy to layer and set. but, to make it more interesting, you can serve it small glass cup or bowl. it can be tricky to layer but easy to serve as a single portion.
