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.
Since it's a night-time drink, I've kept it simple. If you are having it during the day, you can try adding nuts and cardamom to it for a stronger flavour.

What is your lullaby drink? I hope it's not alcohol.

      This looks like a great drink but, I really have to try the kimchi recipe below!
