Semiya Coconut Payasam
Source: Geetu Pore- (Friend)
I had this in my friends house. Tasted very good and it
was very different. Thought i'll prepare the same and
Milk - 3 cups
Semiya - 1/2 cup
Shredded coconut - 1cup(Sweetend or unsweetend-your choice)
Sugar - 3/4 cup (you can add or reduce according to your taste
Cardamom - 5 to 6
Ghee - 2tbs
Heat a pan, add a tbsp of ghee and add the vermicelli and roast it for 4 to 5 mts till a nice aroma emanates the kitchen and it turns a light brown shade. Remove from pan and keep aside.
Take a vessel pour the milk into it and cook for 5 mts, then add the roasted vermicelli and allow it to cook fully. Then add shredded coconut and sugar let it simmer for few more, stir it once in a while. Finally add cardamom powder or whole cardamom. When done remove from fire.
Serve warm or refrigerate until chilled.
