Vermicelli Pudding | Seviyan Kheer | Semiya Payasam
Spread the love

This is quite possibly the easiest and quickest Indian dessert. Roasted vermicelli is cooked in milk, cardamom, and sugar then garnished with roasted cashews and raisins. Typically payasams from Kerala are made with coconut milk and sweetened with coconut sugar. This particular one is not originally from Kerala but it’s so loved that it’s found its way into our sadhya!

Dairy can easily be swapped with any of the multiple non- dairy milk out there, like soy, almond, cashew, oat, etc. My favorite is soy milk because it’s creamy and doesn’t compete with the taste and aroma of the original dish.

  • Measure and set aside cashews and raisins. Golden raisins taste the best in my opinion.

  • Heat oil in a pan and roast the cashews and raisins on low. Stirring constantly, making sure they don't burn. Turn off the heat when the raisins balloon up and the cashews are golden.
  • In a pot add soy milk, roasted vermicelli, sugar, and cardamom and cook on low until the vermicelli is cooked. Then turn off the heat and stir in the roasted cashews, raisins, and a pinch of salt.
