How to Make Semui Payesh/Vermicelli Pudding #284

Semui Payesh/Vermicelli Pudding is very easy to make. It’s similar to that of payesh/rice pudding but cooking time is very less. Have some roasted vermicelli (thin) at home, that you can make a pudding with, just in 10-15 mins. The thin roasted vermicelli takes 5-6 mins to soften, the thicker one takes a little longer. No matter which one you use, the process is fairly simple.

You can skip the cashew nuts or raisins if you don’t like them or don’t have them around. The basic pudding can be made with just 3 ingredients- milk, sugar and vermicelli.

Let’s check out the recipe now.

Things you need

  1. 10 Cashew nuts (optional)
  2. 20 Raisins (optional)
  3. 25 g Semui/Sevayi/Vermicelli
  4. 500 ml milk
  5. 10 tsp sugar
  6. 1 tsp ghee
  7. Pinch of Cardamom powder
