Semiya Payasam/Semiya Kheer/Vermicelli Kheer Recipe - How to make semiya payasam:

Cooking Time:  10 mins    |  Serves: 2-3
Recipe Category : Dessert


  • Semiya/Vermicelli - 1 cup
  • Sugar - 3/4 cup
  • Boiled Milk - 2 cup
  • Water - 1/2 cup
  • Cardamom(Elachi) - 1 pierced(optional)
  • Cashews - 10 split(minimum)
  • Ghee -2 tsp


1. Heat ghee in a pan. Saute cashews till they turn golden brown color. Transfer the ghee and toasted cashews to another bowl. Dry roast semiya(vermicelli) in the same pan. You can ignore roasting semiya if you are using roasted vermicelli. You can roast even if it is roasted vermicelli to get a nice aroma and flavor.

2. Add milk, elachi, water and sugar now. Allow it to boil in low flame till the semiya gets cooked completely. It will become soft. Stir occasionally. Add very little water in case the semiya sticks to the pan. Switch off the stove once the semiya(vermicelli) is cooked. The payasam/kheer tends to get thicker over time. Keep that in mind while cooking. So, do not boil it more. If it gets thickened, add milk.
