Here's the payasam ..


I've tried my hand at 1st principle Semiya Payasam ("Vermicelli Kheer" for the uninitiated) 2 times before. Both times it failed to turn the right shade of pink coz i didn't leave it on a simmering flame for the 30 mins or so that it's supposed to be.

This being Chathurti and all, I promised myself i'd make the perfect payasam and offer as "naivedyam" (offering to god types) to Lord Ganesha. Clincher being ur not supposed to taste the naivedyam until you've offered it to God.

Anyway, here's the payasam and we're headed out to my favorite Vinayakar temple in the city - the Senpaga Vinayakar Kovil. Will taste and let you know later how it turned out. Atleast for now, its the right color. :) I'll make my peace with that :)

Eh. It is looking nice ya. I am to be liking that you have achieved your first real with-picture food post. It shall, henceforth, be known as the payasam post.
And also -- I didn't make any chathurti worthy items yday. Pfaffed all day.

To the anonymous whose puke looks like semiyapayasam, i dont want to start describing how i imagine your other outputs to be; but am sure your inputs are equally
"inviting" as your wimpy comment.

It's so wonderful that you made payasam .. sure that your mum and Lord Ganesha woulda been mighty pleased :) Looks good!

Btw, my 21 month old saw the pic as I was typing and immdly goes "cereal, yum" :) (he loves his breakfast cereal and eats it very milky and in a bowl similar to yours)

Good good. But where are all the kishmish (raisins)? A kheer without raisins..no..no..no.. :P I'm sure you can now imagine what kishmish fan I am. :D So next time please add those as well.

And can I leave my address where you can courier it to? :D
