Vermicelli Sweet Dish (Shevyaa Paaysa)

Yesterday was Karthik Poornima, which is 6th of August. We make Shevyaa Paaysa (Vermicelli Dessert) on this day or Shevayee (Rice String Noodles or String Hoppers) on this day.

I quickly checked Shilpa's recipe and followed it. Thanks Shilpa! It came amazingly well. Kudos to your precision in measurments, I can make great Paaysa now! This is the second method which I followed and the results were very impressive!

Happy Karthik Poornima to one and all! This is the auspicious day which represents the 15th day of the lunar calendar hence Poornima. This is also the day when famous Puskhar Mela is held at Pushkar, Rajasthan. I had a small pooja at home and prayed for all.
