Semiya Payasam (Vermicelli Pudding)

Dear readers,

Wish you all a Happy Navaratri! Here's a simple dessert recipe for day 1. I will try to post sundal recipe in the next couple of days.



Serves 3

Ingredients:
Vermicelli/Semiya - 3/4 cup
Ghee - 1 tsp
Cashews/Raisins - 1 tsp each
Milk - 3 cups or more depending on the consistency (do not use fat free)
Sugar - 1/2 cup or more
Saffron - a few
Cardamom - generous pinch

Method:
Heat ghee in a pan. Roast the cashews. When they start to turn light golden brown, add raisins and fry for few seconds. Set aside.
In the same pan, roast vermicelli till it turns golden brown.
Add milk, saffron, cardamom and cook for 15 minutes.
Add sugar and cook for another 5 minutes.
Add roasted nuts and raisins.
Serve warm or chilled.

The payasam tends to get thicker as it cools. Add more milk if you want or reduce the amount of vermicelli to 1/2 cup.
