Semiya Payasam / Vermicelli kheer / Sweet Vermicelli Pudding

Last Saturday afternoon, I thought of preparing a small veg feast for my family. My husband always like veg dishes especially the combination of sambar, Avial, Tomato Pachadi and Appalam. So i prepared all these dishes, moreover how it can be a feast without a dessert. I prepared my favorite Semiya payasam. It is the easiest dessert to prepare with awesome taste. I always prepare MTR vermicelli kheer mix which i like very much but this i tried on my own without any mix and it came out very well too. I hope you prepare this on any special occasions and enjoy with your family:-)
