A very happy New Year to all of you!! How was your New Year’s Day? We had the pleasure of spending the time with our cousin’s family on that day. We all spent the day chitchatting, eating to the fullest, watching movies etc.
I prepared this Mango Payasam as a special treat for the New Year day. A sweet treat for a wonderful start of the Year!! It tasted so delicious and everyone liked it so much.
2 cups Mango Pulp
1 cup Vermicelli
½ cup Sugar
1½ cups Water
1 cup Milk
1 tbsp Ghee
Few Cardamom Seeds
Few slivered Almonds (Can be replaced with Cashews)
Add some ghee in a pan and roast the almonds + raisins until the almonds turn golden brown and raisins puff up. Then transfer to a plate and keep aside.
In the same pan add rest of the ghee and add vermicelli and fry until it turns golden brown in color. Pour the water and sugar. Mix well, cover and let it cook until vermicelli becomes soft.
Then add milk + cardamom and mix well. When the milk starts to boil add the mango pulp and mix well. Keep this on the flame for 5 minutes and turn off.
Let the payasam cool for some time. Then garnish with some almonds and raisins and serve at room temperature or chilled.
This is a perfect sweet treat for any special occasion. Yummy!!
