Roast the vermicelli in ghee, till it gets a light brown colour.
Roast the cashews in ghee and keep aside.
Boil the milk and remove the cream (pada) from it.
Add 1/2 cup of water and cook the semiya in it.
Add cardamom powder.
Keep stirring to prevent the formation of lumps.
When the semiya is almost cooked, add the milkmaid and keep stirring for 2-3 minutes.
Remove from flame and add 5 - 10 drops of rose essence.
Garnish with badam, cashews and pistachios.
What happened to the 2 1/2 milk??? no mention of it in the preparation.
Too good a recipe...easy and convenient to prepare...thanks
Delicious and I made a low fat one!
I tried it. It is very simple and easy to make and the payasam tasted yummy! The novice that I am as far as cooking is concerned my husband was pleasantly surprised.
Had a dewali dinner at friend place last nite. Though of making some sweet. For the first time in my life I made this sweet and it turn out yummy without any trail. Easy reciep and quick. Everyone should try it out.
But can someone verify how many grams is 1 tin of milkmaid. Since I cant find milkmiad in Aussie, I use condense milk. It was yummy everyone loved it.
The payasam came out really well and the taste was awesome, thanks pachakam
I made this yesterday and it was too good. This was the first time I have made any paayasam. Thanks alot.. it was really really good with condensed milk. If you dont get vermicelli, then it can be replaced with spaghetti,too.. but will be a little thicker when cooled down. So with spaghetti, you may add more water.
awesome recipe,tooooooo goooooood
Very good and very easy...Thanks.
Wow!! My favorite payasam is semiya payasam and I am very picky about it. The only one I have liked so far has been my mom`s recipe which takes quite a bit of time. This is exactly same taste with less work and time. I used roasted bambino vermicelli so that I didn`t have to roast it. And also i did all the cooking in microwave. Boiled milk for 2 1/2 minutes. then added vermicelli and boiled for 2 1/2 minute twice stirring between the 2 1/2 minutes. then added condensed milk and cooked again for 2 1/2 minutes. came out just like my mom`s. thank you.
Great its really yummy ..excellent!!
Good..Recipe..And by the way Milkmaid is also condensed milk
Rich and yummy!
Not bad... It would have been useful if the recipe actually could mention actual quantities rather than "one can of milkmaid" and so on. Eitherway, it was not bad at all.
I like this version of semiya payasam better than the traditional one.
It is a good receipe. One suggestion. U can add condensed milk instead of milkmaid. I do that always and it is tasty.
i am going to try it.positive it will be yummy
