Carrot Semiya Payasam


With dewali just around the corner this carrot semiya payasam is one of my favorite festival foods. It is quick and easy to prepare. Additional of carrot gives it a very nice color and enhances its flavor. Here is the recipe

Ingredients
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup broken vermicelli/samiya
  • 1/2 cup grated carrot
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup dry fruits (cashewnut,almond,kishmish, chironji and elachi)
  • 1 tsp ghee
Procedure

In a deep bottom pan take 4 cups of milk and heat it.

While you wait for the milk to boil, in another pan heat 1 tsp ghee and fry the vermicelli/samiya to light golden brown and keep aside

In the same pan another spoon of ghee and fry the dry fruits till light golden brown and keep aside

Once milk starts boiling add the vermicelli , grated carrot and stir it nicely and let it cook. Stir occasionally every minute.

Once its cooked switch off the flame add the sugar and stir nicely. The sugar will melt automatically with the heat

Add the dry fruits and serve warm
