This is a traditional Indian pudding that is made for celebrations.  I have substituted the sugar with Xylitol and replaced clarified butter with just a scant tablespoon of coconut oil. Other flavourings that can be used in place of saffron are cardamom or cinnamon.

Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 3 1/2 cups Almond Milk
  • 4 Tbsp Thin Vermicelli Noodles, dry roasted and browned
  • 4 - 5 Tbsp Xylitol
  • 2 Tbsp Almonds, peeled and chopped
  • 1 Tbsp Sultanas
  • 1/2 tsp Saffron, crushed
  • 1 Tbsp, scant Coconut Oil


  1. Take 1/2 cup of almond milk and heat it gently. Add the crushed saffron and set it aside.
  2. Toast the chopped almonds and sultanas, set aside.
  3. Melt coconut oil and add the vermicelli noodles. When aromatic and golden brown, mix in the Xylitol. Mix well and add in the toasted nuts and sultanas.
  4. Add the remaining 3 cups of Almond milk to the pan and cook covered until the vermicelli is completely soft cooked.
  5. At this stage, take the the pan off heat and add the remaining almond milk with saffron mixed into it. Mix well. Serve warm or cold, they both taste equally good.
