Semiya Payasam refers to a traditional Kerala dessert. Semiya Payasam which is also called Vermicelli Payasam is a milk-based pudding prepared with fine noodles (Vermicelli) cooked in ghee and milk. It is then flavored with cardamom, pistachio, raisins and cashew nuts and sometimes raisins are added.

Semiya Payasam is a perfect ending to a south Indian meal called Sadya. The sumptuous "Onasadya" or Onam Sadya, the feast on Onam is always finished up with the serving of this delicious and delicious dessert.

In Allepey, Kerala, India, they told me that the secret make a perfect Semiya Payasam is the right and perfect timing to add the ingredients.
