Muzaffar is an Avadhi cuisine. Sevaiyon ka Muzaffar is made for the auspicious occasion of Eid. In this recipe very thin vermicelli is fried in pure ghee (along with nuts, and then cooked in milk and sugar syrup. The aroma of saffron, kewada (screw pine) water and cardamoms give this dessert a distinct flavor.

Festivals bring so many sweet memories. When we were living in Lucknow, our Muslim friends made sure to make a special vegetarian feast for us on Eid. The taste of their sevaiyon ka Muzaffar cannot be forgotten. I have tried to make this dish a few times. It is not as perfect as our friends made, still it always gets a rave review from our family and friends when I serve them this traditional Avadhi dish.
