Learn how to make raw seviyan (vermicelli) at home. Or we can say jawa kaise tode in the Hindi language.
Generally, we buy vermicelli from the market. Mostly, machine-made seviyan are available in the market. In some places, handmade seviyan or vermicelli are also available.
In this post, we will learn how to make seviyan/vermicelli from the hand at home.
These are made with maida and sooji. A dough of maida and suji is made then the thin thread is prepared with the hands and the small pieces break from the thread. Then they are dried in the sunlight. After that, we roast them in desi ghee. And they are prepared.
In India, we call them seviyan or jawa or jawe. And in the English language vermicelli is the name.
We made these jawa before the Raksha Bandhan festival. And these are given as gifts to the mother to his married daughter. I also get these as a gift before Raksha Bandhan.
These jawa or seviyan used in making seviyan kheer and namkeen seviyan (seviyan upma).
I love the salty variant of it. I and my daughter love to have this namkeen seviyan.
