This deliciously rich dessert, Seviyan Ka Zarda, is a speciality of the Muslim community and it is just one dessert among the fantastic spread of elaborate dishes served during the festival of Eid al-Fitr. The vermicelli is fried until browned and crunchy, then added to a cardamom-scented sugar syrup with an assortment of nuts and raisins, and gently simmered until all the syrup has been absorbed.
