Hyderabad, Aug 26 (ANI): The sale of vermicelli, or ’seviyan’ as it is popularly called, has shot up here during the fasting month of Ramadan.

‘Seviyan’ forms an intrinsic part of Ramadan meals, as people prefer to eat it when they break their fast every day.

“I am preparing it for 15 years and we are making this since our forefathers started it 50 years back. This is our family business,” said Saleem Khan, a worker

Manufacturers say they are flooded with orders during Ramadan.

“Sale is good and will further improve. This year the sale is good than last year,” said Shankar, a shopkeeper

The sellers also confirmed that the handmade vermicelli is the better one.

Muslims awaken before dawn to have an early meal called ‘Sahar’. They fast during the day until called for the Maghrib, their fourth prayer of the day, at sunset. (ANI)
