Seviya kheer/ Semiya Payasam

Hi Friends,
Back with a much awaited post Seviya Kheer/ Semiyan Payasam. Kheer is usually made during the festival time or any celebrations.
South Indian version is know as Payasam,which is made up of jaggery and coconut milk. But I made this Payasam with milk and sugar only.
This dish is also made by Muslims on their auspicious days like Eid-ul-fitr and Eid-ul-adha.......

1 cup vermicelli 
3 cups milk
2-3 tbsp condensed Milk 

1/2 cup sugar ( Adjust taste, condensed milk too contain sugar)
1/4 tsp cardamom powder 
1/2 or 1 tbsp broken cashew nuts 
1 tbsp raisins 

1 tbsp almond (blanched and sliced)
1/2 tsp ghee


  1. Saute vermicelli/seviya in anon-stick pan with ghee till light brown in colour. Take them out and keep it aside.
  2. In same pan, fry the cashews, raisins til golden brown, take them out and keep aside
  3. Add milk to the pan along with the seviyan,give one boil.
  4. Now reduce the heat, add sugar and condensed milk. Mix well. Cook on low heat till the vermicelli is cooked. Keep stirring in between.
  5. Reserve a few almonds, cashew-nuts and raisins for decoration. Remaining put in the pan along with the cardamon powder. Mix well.
  6. Cook for another 3-4 mins. Take the pan off the heat.
  7. Garnish with remaining nuts.  Serve warm or cold.
