"Blog Hop Wednesday" is a monthly event and this is the second version which has been started at Radhika's blog. This event happens every second week of the month. It would be announced on Wednesday and within 3 days there should be an entry from your partner's blog, which Radhika would have intimated through her google group, "blog hop wednesday". 

I had been paired with Nirmala. She is in US and mom of two children who are married. Interesting thing is her daughter, Archana also writes a blog. She had quite interesting recipes. I had bookmarked her recipes - groundnut rice, microwave burfi and this one.

Semiya Payasam is an instant sweet done with Semiya or Semolina which will be like noodles but very short. I usually do it on a stove top, but doing it through Microwave in the office which served for my today's lunch is great. Thanks Nirmala for this recipe as I don't have stove inside the office and I am afraid to work with microwave as its very new to my style of cooking. In office, we get milk, biscuits, sugar, salt, fruits, and so on, as its software company and projects might have hectic pressure they have arranged for all these eatables.

Microwave ovens vary with their temperature and its very important to know what are they? Unfortunately, my office had not maintained its manual and for a beginner like me, its too difficult. So I usually do keep it for one minute, check out, again keep it for one more minute and check. This will go on till I have reached the end product.
  • Roasted Semolina - 1/2 cup
  • Powdered Sugar - 1/2 cup
  • Raisins - few
  • Cashewnuts - few
  • Ghee - 2 tsp
  • Milk - 3 glasses (each glass is of 50ml)

  • Boil Milk for 2 minutes

  • Mix roasted  semolina, powdered sugar, raisins and cashewnuts and then keep it ready by the time milk boils

  • Add the mixture along with ghee to the milk and keep it for 4 minutes, till the semolina turns to be soft
