Semia payasam (Vermicelli Kheer/Pudding)

Payasam (a.k.a. Kheer) is a traditional Indian sweet dish. I made this recently for my fathers birthday and it turned out well. So I decided to share it with my dear readers today. As always, I welcome your feedback and comments.


1 cup of semia
3-4 cups of milk
3/4 cup of sugar
handful of cashew nuts
10 raisins 
pinch of saffron
2 tbsp of ghee 


1.Add ghee to heavy bottomed vessel and add nuts and raisins. Roast them till they turn golden brown. Be careful with raisins, remove before it turns dark.

2.Transfer them to a plate and add the semia to the ghee. Roast them slightly till nice aroma comes.
3.Add boiled milk (warm milk) to the semia. Keep stirring till the semia is cooked.
3.Now add the sugar and allow them to dissolve.
4.Transfer the nuts and saffron. Mix them well. Semia payasam is ready.
