Semiya Paayasam
                Vermicelli  kheer

Semiya payaasam or vermicelli kheer , my favourite favourite  sweet dessert . Unlike other sweet recipe like jelebi, ladoo etc which need pretty good experience, to get them perfect, this vermicelli kheer don’t need any experience at all. 


Even a small kid could make it.:-)  I love it a lot, not only because it taste delicious but also it is very easy to make.

I shoot this recipe video two week ago . But today only I did video editing for my youtube channel . While editing  I felt like to prepare it again J J . Hmmm !!!! So yummy !

But controlled myself as I am going to make some sweet for Tamil New year that falls on 14th april. Anyways  don’t miss this to try. Also I felt like the taste is somewhat equal to punjabi thaba style vermicelli kheer. So here is the recipe.

Video Recipe In TAMIL |  Youtube Channel - Deeps Kitchen


Roasted Vermicelli [semiya ] - ¾ cup
Ghee – 2 tbsp
Cardamom – 3
Saffron – 7-8 strands
Milk – 1 +1/4 cup
Water – 1 to 1 ½ cup [approx ]
Sugar – ¼ cup
Condensed milk – ¼ cup
Cashew nut – 8 broken
Almonds – 4 break into small pieces
Raisins – 10


Heat pan on stove, add ghee and roast cashew and almond till golden brown. Make sure that flame is low .
Add raisins and wait till it puff up. Transfer into separate plate [ only dry nuts ]
Use the same ghee to roast vermicelli for just 2 minutes.

Though I used roasted vermicelli, I roasted again in ghee for best flavor. Another important thing is, use store bought roasted vermicelli. Because if we roast at home, it will get roasted only outside not from inside. So if you cook you may get your kheer become thick once it cooled down or if refridgerated.
Because of the starch in the vermicelli. But in the store bought vermicelli, since it is roasted from inside out, it wont release any starch. So the consistency will remain same till you finish J

After roasting for 2 minutes add 1 cup milk and ½ cup water [reserve remaining water and milk for later use ] .
Cook for 5 minutes. After five minutes, add saffron and cardamom. Remember to crush cardamom seeds so that it will release flavor.
Cook for another 5-6 minutes till vermicelli become soft and well cooked.
Now add condensed milk,sugar,remaining water and milk. Mix well and let it to cook for 2 more minutes.
Finally add fried dry nuts and raisins. That’s all. Your delicious vermicelli kheer or semiya payaasam is ready to serve.

You could either serve warm or chilled. My style is chilled kheer with a scoop of ice cream on top. On my god ! That’s stunning !
You should never miss this !!Try and have a sweet time !
