Turkish vermicelli squares | Kukskitchen

Hey friends

This is the easiest recipe ever with just a handfull of ingredients, very yummy too, which is obvious from the ingredients. I had some vermicelli left over and wanted to make a sweet to send to my brother S. I have had a similar shop bought sweet brought-in by one of my colleagues at work a long time ago, although did'nt know the recipe. Now whilst writing this I searched the web for any similar recipes, none exactly the same as I did. I suppose this recipe is my own then :)


Vermicelli - 400g
Ghee/butter - 4 tsp
Condensed milk - 1 tin

Cling film for wrapping


-Fry vermicelli in ghee for a few minutes till crispy and brown.
-Add condensed milk to it and let it boil for a few minutes till the mix starts to get separated form the sides of the pan.
- grease a shallow tin, pour this and gently pat with the back of a spoon to level it all up.
- once cooled cut squares out of it.
-place each square in the middle of a square sheet of cling film and gather the ends to make a 'bag'.
- this way u can keep your fingers clean whilst eating the sweet.
