My Favourite Sweet Toasted Vermicelli for Ramadan

I do have another recipe for Seviyan posted, but that is a creamier more dessert like dish. I prefer this one as it is not as sweet & is brilliant for Suhor (the meal before dawn). Seviyan is the name of the toasted vermicelli used to make sweets aswell as savoury dishes in countries such as Pakistan & India. It is eaten throughout the year but comes into it's own during Ramadan. You can buy Seviyan / toasted vermicelli at most Asian stores & you can find it in the international isle of the larger supermarkets. Otherwise you can toast your own fine vermicelli in the oven! The fruit & nuts I refer to is the tropical dried fruit & nut mix you buy which typically has coconut, papaya, pineapple, banana, raisins & peanuts. If you don't want to use this then you can use slivered almonds & roughly chopped pistachios instead.
