Semiya Payasam with Condensed Milk-Quick Vermicelli Kheer Recipe

Onam is just a few days away, then comes Navratri, then Diwali, so we might be having lots of work during those days. I thought of posting an easy payasam recipe which can be done in a jiffy using condensed milk. No more stirring the milk for a long time. Today we will learn how to make semiya payasam (sweet vermicelli pudding) using condensed milk following this easy recipe with step wise pictures.

 Recipe CuisineIndian

   Ingredients needed

   Vermicelli/semiya - 1/3 cup
   Milk - 3 cups (I used 3.5% fat)
   Condensed milk - 100 grams
   Cashew nuts -6-7
   Raisins - 10-12
   Ghee/clarified butter - 1 tsp
   Cardamom - 3 pods (powdered)


Heat a tsp of ghee, saute the cashew nuts until golden brown. Remove from pan. Saute raisins until they puff up. Remove from pan.

In the same pan, saute the vermicelli on low heat until golden. Keep it aside.

Keep all the things ready. You can use milkmaid or amul mithai mate for this recipe. (I used only 1/2 a tin of 200 grams amul mithai mate)

Vermicelli Kheer Recipe


Boil milk in a pan, add the roasted vermicelli and cook stirring until soft and tender.

Once the vermicelli is cooked, add the condensed milk, mix well and cook for 2-3 minutes.

You can adjust the consistency of the payasam to your liking, by adding more or less milk. If you like thin payasam, add more milk. As this payasam cools, it will thicken further, you can add more milk and adjust the consistency to your liking.

If you like the payasam too sweet, you can add more condensed milk.

You can make this for onam sadya also, though this is not the traditional way of making payasam.
