Caramel Semiya payasam

One day i baked fruit cake. In that recipe, we caramelize sugar. That idea make me to try this semiya payasam.


Semiya - 1 cup - roasted

Sugar - 3/4 cup

Milk - 2 cups

Chopped nuts, raisins - few

Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp

Ghee - 2 tbsp

To caramelize:

Sugar - 1 tsp

Water - 1/4 cup


1. Heat kadai and add sugar. Sugar will start to turn browning i.e., caramelizing. Simmer the flame and add water. Remove as soon as possible.

2. Cool it.

3. In another kadai, add milk and bring it to nearly 1 1/4 cups.

4. Add semiya and make it to boil.

5. Add sugar, cardamom powder and caramelized sugar.

6. Now fry all the nuts in ghee and add it to the payasam.

7. Serve hot or cold.
