Semiya/Vermicille -1/2 cup
(I used the big variety)
Chopped cashew nuts or almonds -10
Cardamom powder-1/2 tsp
Heat 1tsp of ghee fry the dry fruits till light brown & keep it aside.
In the same pan add 1tsp ghee & fry the semiya in low flame roasted till its light brown.
Pour the milk & water into the roasted semiya, in low flame cook the semiya till its cooked & the milk is slightly thickened.
Now add the sugar & give a boil,switch off the flame mix in the fried nuts & cardamom powder.Serve it hot.
a) You can serve this payasam/kheer hot or cold.
b) Once cooled sometime the payasam may thicken,so before serving dilute with little hot milk,mix & serve.
c) For extra richness you can add condensed milk.
d) Roasting semiya till light brown is a must,otherwise your payasam will turn out to a sticky porridge.
