Chocolate N Fig Payasam
Indian Vermicelli / Semiya - 1/4 cup
Milk-1 liter
Sugar - 1/4 cup or as per taste
Fig paste - 2 tbsp 
Cashew - 5-6
Almond  - 5-6
Ghee/  - 1 tablespoon
Cocoa Powder - 1 tbsp

1.      In the frying pan add ghee and roast the vermicelli for about 1-2 minutes until they turn light brown.
2.      Bring the milk to boil & add the vermicelli and sugar. Mix well
3.      In a separate bowl add cocoa powder and 2 tbsp of cold milk and mix well. Add it to the boiling milk.
4.      Stir frequently to avoid the semiya/vermicelli settling at the bottom or burning.
5.      As the vermicelli cooks, you'll find the milk thickening. (takes around 20-25 minutes depending on your quantity)
6.   When the consistency is thicker add fig paste and cook for another 2 minutes. (don't let it thicken too much coz it anyways tends to thicken on cooling)
7.      Let it be cool. Can keep in fridge to make it chilled.
8.      Garnish with cashews n almonds chips.
9.      Serve chilled :-)
