I know this is well known to everyone. However I am sending this for some events and as a presentation of New Year treat. Simple yet tasty treat with a light twist.


Roasted vermicelli 1 cup
Cashew and badam 10 to 15 each
Cardamom 3
Saffron few
Poppy seeds/kasa kasa 1 tsp (roasted)
Sugar 2 cups
Milk 4 cups
Ghee 2 tsp
Condensed milk ½ cup


Soak badam and cashew for ½ hr and peal the skin of badam.
Dry Roast poppy seeds/kasa kasa and grind both to paste.
Boil the milk along with semiya/vermiceli. When it has done add the paste slowly and combine well. Add sugar, saffron n cardamom, stir finely.
Allow to boil for atleat 15 mts in medium or low flame.
Then add condensed milk. Let it boil for few more mts.
Now u can get thick consistency of tasty payasam with all good effects of milk.
Garnish with ghee roasted cashews.

During my pregnancy I badly Craving for sweet the moment I finished my lunch or dinner.. So I used to take Pea nuts burfi, dates or at least a spoon of honey. Some times I used to prepare this payasam which is rich in milk and nuts.

I love this payasam very much.... my kids too.

This tasty payasam is moving to
