Majority of my readers might have tasted this recipe an ample times and a very quick fix dessert when you are short of time.Mom used to prepare it for us as a kid and loved those days but now its not as pleasing.But my younger one does like it so much and so for him I prepare this frequently.Vermicelli is one recipe where you have lot many options for recipes and this I think is the simplest.As far as many other kheer /payasam recipes,this is the worry free one too even for a beginner !!
milk 4 cups/ 1litre
condensed milk 1/2 tin
sugar 3-4tbsp(sweetness as desired)
cashew nuts 2tbsp
cardamom powder 1 tsp

-Heat the ghee in a non stick pan and fry the raisins,cashewnuts.Place them on a plate.

-Add the sugar and bring to boil.Add the condensed milk and keep stirring on medium heat till the vermicelli strands are cooked and tender.(takes about 10 minutes)
-Add the fried cashewnuts and raisins.Garnish with cardamom powder.
