Semiya Payasam/Vermicelli Payasam/Vermicelli Kheer

Semiya Payasam/Vermicelli Payasam/Vermicelli Kheer is a very common and famous dessert in South India. No Tamil feast is complete without a payasam, it is so simple and can be made within minutes. It is one traditional sweet that is made on all auspicious and festive occasions.

Here's how to make it with step by step photos...



Ingredients

Vermicelli/Semiya
1 cup
Milk
4 cups boiled
Sugar
¾ cup
Ghee
1 tbsp
Cashew nuts
6 -10
Raisins
8-10
Almonds Sliced
Few
Cardamom powder
From 4

Method

In a pan heat ghee, add cashew nuts, raisins and roast them and keep it aside.
In the same pan roast the vermicelli or you can use the roasted vermicelli available in shops. Roast until they turn to golden brown. 


Now add one cup of milk and cook the vermicelli. It cooks in about 5-7 min.


Now add rest of the milk, sugar, cardamom powder, roasted cashew nuts and raisins. Wait for the milk to boil really well for about 5 min. Now switch off the stove.


Yummy semiya payasam is ready to be enjoyed. Garnish it with almond slices and serve it either hot or chilled.

Suggestions:

If the consistency of the payasam becomes thick, you can later on add more milk to adjust it.
You can also cook the vermicelli with water, but here I have cooked with milk.

You can also replace sugar with condensed milk, which will be very yummy and creamy.
