Semiya-Bread Payasam

Week 2 Day 2 of BM #57 - 

This payasam came about when I accidentally poured more milk than required for the vermicelli I used. I had to fix in the last minute and so resorted to adding bread instead of other traditional ingredients :).

The texture was amazing so was the taste. So I guess some mistakes happen for new things to come out, right? 

Ingredients - 

Semiya/Vermicelli 1/2 cup (I used the roasted variety)
Bread 2 slices
Almond-Cashew Nut Powder 2 Tbsp
Sugar 1/2 cup
Cardamom Powder 1/2 tsp
Milk 4 cups
Almond slices for garnish

Semiya-Bread Payasam

Method Of Preparation -

In a pan add 4 cups of water and cook semiya until tender. Drain and set aside.

Pulse the bread slices and powder them coarsely. Set aside.

In a pan, boil milk, add sugar, cooked semiya, almond-cashew nut powder. Add in the bread powder as well.

Mix well and let it simmer for a few minutes.

Remove and garnish with almond slices and serve warm.

Preparation Time 20 minutes
Serves 5-6
