Semiya Payasam

What I used:

Vermicelli : 1 1/2 cup
Milk : 3 cups
Water : 2 cups
Condensed Milk : 1/2 can
Sugar : 1/3 cup or as required
Nuts : as you wish (I used cashews, almonds, raisins)
Ghee : 1 tbsp

How I did:
  • Take a sauce pan and boil 2 cups of water in it on medium high flame.
  • Reduce the flame to medium and add vermicelli to it.  You can also use roasted vermicelli if you wish.
  • Cook for about two minutes and pour 3 cups of milk.
  • Once the milk comes to boil add condensed milk and sugar.
  • Switch off the stove once it comes to boil and leave it on the same stove for 10 minutes.
  • Heat ghee in another pan, add all the nuts and fry till nicely browned.
  • Pour into the payasam.
  • Serve warm as a dessert.
Note:  When the stove is switched off, the payasam will be in liquid consistency and thickens after 10 to 15 minutes.
