Wishing all Malayalis a very happy Onam! And for those who are new to this term, here is something to read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Onam
And this Onam it’s semiya payasam for us. An all time favorite of mine; though hubby and daughter is more for parippu payasam. The recipe I share is with Condensed milk, that’s made the payasam so creamy and rich and so fitting for the celebration. Please adjust the sugar to suit your taste. I have used store brought roasted cashews for garnishing instead of fried cashew. You may opt for this or do the traditional way of frying the cashews and raisins in the ghee as mentioned in the recipe below.
You need –
- Vermicelli/semiya – 1 cup
- Milk – 1 litre
- Condensed milk – 1 tin
- Sugar – 2 tablespoon or as per taste
- Cashew nuts & raisins – 1/4 cup each
- Cardamom powder – 1/4 teaspoon
- Ghee/clarified butter – 1 tablespoon + extra for frying cashews and raisins
How to –
Heat 1 tablespoon ghee in a heavy bottom pan and roast the semiya till golden brown.
Add milk and cook over low flame till semiya is cooked through and milk has reduced and bit thick. Stirring frequently. Add condensed milk and sugar. Mix till well combined.
Add cardamom powder and turn off the heat.
In a pan, heat the ghee and fry the cashew nuts till golden brown. Add the raisins and fry till they puff up. Add this to the payasam and serve hot or chilled.

Happy onam Rekha…hope u had great day….payasam looks superb .The condensed milk version will be so yummm…I made semiya and parippu pradhaman this time and I wanted to try semiya with condensed milk for a change as we had friendS, but my hubby picked evaporated milk instead of condensed milk so I dropped the plan and made the simple one with milk….it was yumm anyway so didn't bother but one day I will make with condensed milk 🙂
Yummo, Happy Onam!
