Payasam (Rice/Vermicelli Pudding)


  • 1 cup of whole-grained vermicelli
  • 1 1/2 cups of 1st pressed coconut milk
  • 1 1/2 cups of 2nd pressed coconut milk
  • 5 tablespoons of jaggery
  • 3 tablespoons of raisins
  • 3 tablespoons of broken cashew nuts
  • 2 pinches of powdered cardamon


In a heated pan, roast the vermicelli at a low flame for 2-3 minutes, (oil should not be used for this).  In a separate saucepan, heat the thinner coconut milk to a boil.
When it begins to boil switch off the flame. Add the vermicelli and cover to keep the heat so that the vermicelli can soften in the milk. After 5 minutes, add all the other ingredients, stir well and taste. Add more sugar or cardamon if needed.

Refrigerate till served.
