Semiya Payasam

Semiya Payasam
One year ago,  my mom introduced semiya payasam to my kid. Since then I prepare it at-least once in a week.  He calls it as sweet noodles and loves it a lot. I usually skip adding cashews and raisins, as he doesn't like it. Instead I add cashew powder to his semiya sweet pudding. Today I prepared the normal semiya payasam which is a very common festival recipe in our houses. It is an easy and quick dessert. Please check below for step wise instructions and pictures for preparing Vermicelli Payasam.

Preparation Time: 5 mins
Cook Time: 15 mins 
Ready In: 20 mins 
Yields: 3 Servings

Semiya / Vermicelli           
1/2 Cup
1 tbsp
1/2 Cup
2.5 Cups
Cashews and Raisins
10 Each


  • Heat Ghee in a pan. Add cashews and cardamom. when cashews starts to turn golden colour, add raisins. Fry for 20 -30 secs till raisins become fluffy. Remove cashews, cardamom and raisins from pan.

  • In the same pan add vermicelli and fry till it turns golden colour. 

  • Add 2.5 cups of milk and allow it to boil. Check whether vermicelli is cooked. Once vermicelli is cooked, add sugar and cook for 2-3 mins. Remove from stove. Lastly garnish with roasted cashews, raisins and cardamom.

Cardamom can be replaced with cardamom powder. It is optional to add cardamom.
Instead of adding 2.5 cups of  milk, we can add 1 cup milk and 1.5 cup water.
