Roast the vermicelli in ghee. To one cup of milk add 2 cups of water + 1.5 cups of sugar and boil well. Once the milk boils and thickens add the roasted vermicelli. Add cardamom pdr as required. I usually add a pinch of it.
In another pan, add ghee cashewnuts + raisins. Saute them for a while and then add them to the payasam.
Simple Semiya Payasam is ready to be served. You can serve it both hot and cold.
