This is my simple and quick night-time drink just before going to bed. I've heard drinking hot milk gets you to sleep quickly. I don't know if that's true or just a myth but it surely works for me. Drinking plain milk is sometimes boring. If I am not really full after dinner, I usually drink hot milk with Roasted Vermicelli.
I usually buy Roasted Vermicelli from my local Indian grocery. They also call it Sevai or Sewai. I have found several Sevai pudding recipes on the Internet. I will probably do one for another post in the future. I once tried hot milk with thin Chinese rice noodles and it wasn't good at all. So stick with roasted vermicelli for a better result.
- A cup of milk
- Roasted vermicelli, a bit less than a hand-full (see the third image above)
- Sugar to taste
- Add a cup of milk and roasted vermicelli in a saucepan.
- Add sugar to taste.
- Boil until the vermicelli becomes soft. The roasted vermicelli is very thin. So it takes around 5 minutes or even less in a high heat to cook it.
What is your lullaby drink? I hope it's not alcohol.
