Semiya Paayasam (kheer)

I made this yesterday for Diwali. This makes enough for 2-3 people.

You need: 1/2 cup semiya, 1/2 cup sugar (or 3/4, if you like it really sweet), 2.5 cups milk, 1 pinch saffron, 1 tbsp ghee

How to:

  1. Heat the ghee in a saucepan on medium heat. Add the semiya and stir. Roast until golden-brown, stirring constantly.
  2. Warm a little milk and mix the saffron in it.
  3. Add just enough water to cover the semiya and let it cook. When the semiya is half-done, add the milk, sugar, and saffron. Stir well.
  4. Bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
  5. Eat hot or cold.
