Semiya Javvarisi Payasam / Semiya Sago Payasam | Easy Festival Recipes | Payasam Recipes

I am running out of energy and time too. He runs, I run and then we all run. Leave him alone for a minute and the next second he falls and there will be blood. Life has been total chaos lately and nothing goes as planned. Added to that the kid's 1st birthday is right around the corner and its been planning, planning and more planning for the last couple of weeks.

With Mr.A not here, its been too emotional and stressful. And so spending time for composing and blogging has taken a backseat. I bloghop but feeding my own blog is what I am talking here. Take this post for instance, it was supposed to appear on the blog on Tamil new year or atleast a day later. I think it is a black-out period for me. There are loads of stuff going on and so blogging is surely gonna slow down or atleast till the kids birthday.

And now to the pics, I know that they are not clear. Something is going on with the P&S and its not good. The focus seems so blurred these days and that is why the pics appear so cloudy. My mobile pics seem good compared to these. You are gonna see some not-good pics in the next few months until I get a good quality camera and am so sorry for that.

~*What U Need*~
Semiya(Vermicelli) - 1/2 cup
Boiled Milk - 1 cup
Water - 3/4 cup
Sugar - 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp
Milkmaid - 4 tbsps
Sago/Javvarisi pearls - 1/4 cup
Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp
Cashews, Raisins - 2 tsp
Ghee - 1 tbsp

How I Made it:
Heat ghee in a nonstick pan, add semiya or vermicelli and roast till brown, remove and set aside. In the same pan, add milk and water and bring to a boil.

Add sago pearls or 2 tsps of crushed sago powder and after 5 mins add the vermicelli. Cook till the semiya is soft. Add sugar and condensed milk and combine well. Allow to simmer till the milk thickens to desired consistency.

Fry cashew and raisins in ghee till puffed and golden brown. Add toasted cashews and raisins, cardamom powder and switch off.


Serve hot or cold.

** My Notes:
** You can skip the condensed milk and use only sugar.
** I had some sago powder which I use to make kanji. So I used it here, but you can use regular sago pearls.
** For the sago pearls to get easily cooked, soak in water for 1 hour.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
