- Now to the same pan, add vermicelli, and mix well. Roast for around 3 minutes until it starts becoming a light golden brown.
- Next add the milk to the pan and stir. Increase heat to medium-high and let the milk come to a boil. Stir often in between so that vermicelli doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan. Once the milk comes to a boil, lower the heat to medium and let it boil for around 10 minutes.
- After that the milk will reduce and thicken slightly, at this point add in the sugar and mix. Transfer back the fried nuts into the pan and mix.
