ಶಾವಿಗೆ ಪಾಯಸ – Vermicelli Kheer

Wish you all a happy holi. Enjoy the festival with quick and easy ಶಾವಿಗೆ ಪಾಯಸ – Vermicelli Kheer. I am quite famous for making ಶಾವಿಗೆ ಪಾಯಸ – Vermicelli Kheer. My family just loves the thick Payasa/Kheer I make. It is quite simple and I have given two variations I prepare here. One is the traditional one, and the second my invention.

Traditional ಶಾವಿಗೆ ಪಾಯಸ – Vermicelli Kheer:

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup ಶಾವಿಗೆ – Vermicelli
  • 3 Cups Whole Milk
  • 1 and 1/2 cup Sugar or to Taste
  • 2 tsp Ghee or Unflavored Oil
  • Raisins, Cashew Nuts and Cardamom

Method:

  • Fry the Raisins, nuts and ಶಾವಿಗೆ – Vermicelli in ghee until it turns golden brown.  I fry all of them together.
  • Now, add 1/2 cup milk and let the ಶಾವಿಗೆ – Vermicelli cook until soft.
  • When the ಶಾವಿಗೆ – Vermicelli is completely cooked, add sugar and the remaining milk.
  • Let it boil until all the sugar is dissolved.
  • Finally, add crushed cardamom powder.

Non-Traditional Meera Way ಶಾವಿಗೆ ಪಾಯಸ – Vermicelli Kheer:

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup ಶಾವಿಗೆ – Vermicelli
  • 3 Cups 2% Milk
  • 1 and 1/2 cup Sugar or to Taste
  • Unflavored Oil – No Ghee
  • 3-4 Cloves, 10-15 sliced Almonds and crushed cardamom Powder.

Method:

  • Fry the cloves, Almonds and ಶಾವಿಗೆ – Vermicelli in Oil until it turns golden brown.  I fry all of them together.
  • Now, add 1/2 cup milk and let the ಶಾವಿಗೆ – Vermicelli cook until soft.
  • When the ಶಾವಿಗೆ – Vermicelli is completely cooked, add sugar and the remaining milk.
  • Let it boil until all the sugar is dissolved.
  • Finally, add crushed cardamom powder.

The Cloves and Almonds gave the ಶಾವಿಗೆ ಪಾಯಸ – Vermicelli Kheer completely new taste the first time I prepared. Everyone in my family just loved it. I have been preparing it the Meera Way for many months now. If you like experimenting with food, give it a try. It tastes heavenly.

    Yes, cloves give a very special taste to kheer. I use them in sabudana kheer , coconut barfi and kesaribhath also. cloves match well with the sweets made of sugar.
