Bohra dessert: vermicelli and mango


11/2 litre milk should be slurped consistently while eating

4 mangoes

Sugar should be enough to give it a sweet taste as sometimes the mangoes are not so sweet


A little less than 3/4 packet crushed with hands


Make the vermicelli separately.

Take the milk (cool).

Put in crushed vermicelli and sugar.

Cook till the vermicelli appears on the surface.

Cut mango strips horizontally and vertically to form cubes then gently scrape the mango pulp so you'll get cubes. After the vermicelli cools add the cubes of mangoes to it and place them in glass dishes to cool. Best eaten after left in refrigerator.

Optional: You can add a couple of teaspoons of rose water for the aftertaste.
