seviyan kheer

1. Adding a pinch of salt, enhances the taste of the payasam.
2. Instead of adding, 1 cup milk + 1 cup water, you can cook the vermicelli in the water itself (until 3/4th cooked) and then add the milk. My mother uses this way and i am following it. 
3. Semiya Payasam will thicken when it cools down. So you can add little milk and add to it accordingly.
4. You can reduce the sugar and milk and can add condensed milk, for a rich taste.
