Mom’s Notes:
Saffron is for color and flavor.
If you do not have saffron, add in powdered cardamom for flavor.
You can even add few drops of red coloring for a bright color.

  1. Hi Spandana, vermicelli dessert is my absolute favorite. I too recently posted my version of this dessert which is a little bit different than yours. Beautiful snaps!
