Semiya Payasam | Vermicelli Kheer

Vermicelli kheer or Semiya payasam (pudding) is a classic Indian dessert prepared with roasted vermicelli, milk and nuts and flavored with cardamom.  It is normally prepared on festive occasions or birthdays or when there are guests at home.

Vermicelli kheer can be made with both fresh and condensed milk.  This creamy and delicious dessert is very easy to prepare and does not take much time.
