  • Start the instant pot in SAUTE mode and heat ghee in it.  
  • Add the nuts & dried fruits and saute for 30 seconds.  Then add roasted vermicelli and saute for another 30 seconds. 
  • Stir in the remaining ingredients - sugar, water, cardamom and saffron.  Press CANCEL and close the instant pot lid with vent in sealing position.
  • Press MANUAL or pressure cook mode and set it for 1 minute at high pressure.  
  • When the instant pot beeps, do 5 minute natural pressure release, which means release pressure 5 minutes after the instant pot beeps.
  • Sweet Seviyan are ready to be served.  


  • If you don’t have roasted vermicelli, you can roast it right in your instant pot.  When you add ghee, add the vermicelli and roast it for about 3-4 minutes and then add the nuts.
  • I made these Sweet Seviyan with water, but you can also use 1/2 milk and 1/2 water.
  • It is recommended to buy whole cardamom pods and grind them at home to make a powder.  
  • I did not use raisins in this recipe, but add it based on your preference.
