Hurray! i always wanted to start a recipe blog, but never thought am capable of one, tho one of my passions always remained in food and cooking… now that i have a ‘kitchen’ of my own and i can experiment with tastebuds… here it goes… my kitchen blog! naaah OUR kitchen blog! Both me and brat share this interest and so this blog too… tho most of what i make is ‘my own’ creations n completely freestyle! I wanna start with a traditional south indian sweet, the semiya payasam, typically done, but turns out i just cant stop experimenting!
So here’s a sweet start to my delicious blog!
Semiya Payasam Recipe

Milk powder – 2 to 3 tbsp
Ghee – 2 to 3 tsp
Saffron – a pinch
Cardamom – 2 pieces powdered freshly

Cashews and Raisins
Roast the semiya in some ghee, jus a bit since its already roasted vermicilli

the twist – add some milkpowder-made milk to the payasam and a drop of vanilla essence
