2 sticks of cinnamon
4 cloves
1.5 cups water
Pinch saffron strands

Method:

1. Break the vermicelli into small pieces.
2. Heat ghee in a heavy saucepan add the cloves and cinnamon stick and add the vermicelli .
3. Roast in ghee the vermicelli until golden brown, stirring so that it colours evenly.

5. Add sugar and cook uncovered until all the liquid is absorbed.
6. Stir in 2/3 of the almonds( reserve rest) and add cardamom and nutmeg powder.
