Semiya Payasam

Semiya Payasam


Semiya 1 cup
Water 1 cup
Milk (I used 2%) 1.5 cups
Sugar 1/2 cup
Powdered Cardamom 1 tsp
Ghee/Butter 1.5 tbsp
Cashews, Raisins Few


  1. Heat 1/2 tbsp of ghee in a pan on medium heat; fry the cashews and raisins to golden brown; remove them in to a bowl.
  2. Heat the rest of the ghee and roast the semiya to golden brown.
  3. Add the water and simmer the heat; when the semiya is half-cooked, add the milk, cardamom powder, sugar.
  4. After 5 minutes, add the fried cashews, raisins into the payasam and turn off the heat.

Serve warm.

Notes: The payasam will thicken after it sits some time. In that case add some warm milk (as needed), combine well and serve.
