  • Take sugar and 3 tbsp water in a thick bottomed pan. Simmer the flame completely and let it begin to melt by itself. Do not stir the sugar.
  • Once the sugar caramelizes and reaches an amber shade, add 1/4 cup of hot water(be careful while adding it, it will splash). Mix well.
  • Add milk and 1/2 – 3/4 cup water to this. Mix well. Bring it to a rolling boil.
  • In the mean time, heat 1 tbsp ghee in a pan and roast the vermicelli till light brown in colour.
  • Once the milk starts boiling, add semiya and mix well. Bring it to boil and simmer till semiya cooks through.
  • Simmer completely and cook till the milk reduces slightly, thickening the payasam.
  • Heat a pan with ghee, add chopped cashews and raisins and roast till brown. Transfer this to the kheer and mix in. Caramel payasam is ready to be served hot or cold.
