Mango Vermicelli Kheer - Mambazha Semiya Payasam

Serves 4 - 5
Off late I've got this obsession of adding mango puree to desserts.It makes it look very colorful and flavorful.So this time when hubby brought a box home,the first thing he said was 'can I eat it as it is' :) I gave in and let him chop it and eat it. He thinks it's all  to do with my blog :)) I guess it's true to an extent , blogging does wake up all those cooking instincts inside us.Most of our skills cease to exist when we don't have a platform to exhibit them,thanks to blogging so many of us are great cooks today ! Today morning my little girl came to me with a serious expression on her face and asked me 'Mummy,can I have my own blog'.I really don't know how her tender brain has interpreted this whole blogging business ,but I couldn't help laughing :) She probably thinks its some video game that makes mummy happy:) Does blogging make you very happy too ?? So off to the recipe,this is just a nice twist to the regular semiya payasam that adds more color and flavor.



You'll Need:
Mango - 1 big
Vermicelli - 50 g - 4 -5 tbsp
Sugar - 5 -  8 tbsp (depending on how sweet you like it )
Boiled Milk - 1. 5 - 2 cups
Condensed milk - 3/4 cup
Coconut milk - 1 cup
Ghee - 1-2 tbsp
Cashew nuts - 5 -6
Raisins - 1 tbsp
Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp

Method:
-Break the vermicelli into small pieces.
-Remove the skin and seed of the mango and puree into a fine paste.
-Add 1 tbsp ghee to a pan and saute the cashew nuts and raisins until the cashews are slightly browned and the raisins are puffed up.
-To another pan,add 1 tbsp Ghee and when it heats up saute the vermicelli until slightly browned.Add 1/2 cup of water and let it cook on a low to medium heat for 4 -5 minutes.
-After it's cooked add the milk and condensed milk and stir well.Let it cook for 2 -3 minutes.Add 3/4 th of the sugar and mix well.Let the mixture simmer for 5 minutes.Keep stirring occasionally.
-Add the Coconut milk and mix well.Let it simmer for another 3 -4 minutes.
-Add the cardamom powder and mix well.Let it cook for 2 - 3 minutes.
-Add the roasted cashews ,raisins and ghee mixture.
-Take it off the stove and let it cool completely.Add the mango mixture and stir well.Check for sugar,adding some more if needed.Done !

Note:
-The Kheer tends to thicken on cooling due to the vermicelli and condensed milk.Add some cold whole milk to dilute it before serving.
-Make sure it's completely cool before you add the mango pulp.

  1. nice sharing in the first paragraph. My case is a bit different. My other half will ask me first if I have taken the picture of the food before he eats!!!! Sometimes he teases me by saying that I am cook for my blog than for him. While I enjoy blogging, it can be killer too especially thinking of the intro. So my brain is clogged up, i write a tiny winy intro and be satisfied.

    The kheer is so attractive and I am in love with the bright hue. I will forgo the condensed milk because its too sweet for me and add brown sugar or honey. Adore the fragrance of cardomom and the rest.

  3. Haa..haa Reni..kids are very keen observers ...anytime I go to the store and spend more than a minute on a veg or fruit my daughty immediately picks up that it is going for the blog she gives me a weird look too :))Sometimes I feel I am robbing them of having the fun of cut and eat by cooking it into an unidentifiable state :)Like Nava says my family too asks me did u finish the photo session!!!
    I would love to have the mango payasam anytime of the day.

  6. Tempting recipe reni.. I liked your obsession! That's very common if you are an innovative cook,you tend to experiment in each n every recipe.
    Well same happened with me too.. Few days back I asked my better half as how will it be if I prepare amrakhand when I saw him getting a box full of mangoes.. He was like we are not going to prepare anything, just eat them as it is.. :(.. N moreover whenever I prepare hot pakoras or any savories meant to be eaten hot I keep clicking till I get perfect click and he misses eating them hot.. Sometimes I do keep a separate plate meant to be clicked and he is like give me in a different plate but hot ones please.. N same happens with cold desserts too.. they melt away and come to room temperature by the time I serve him after my clicks.. :P

    I too have this mango obsession, thankfully it remained in check this time due to my travels and work pressure :)
