Semiya Payasam was one of my favorite Kerala desserts as a kid and still is. There are a couple of different types of payasam varieties, but I love the vermicelli and milky, coconut taste of this version. And, it’s SUPER easy to make.
Moru (moh-ruh) curry, rice, and red fish curry is one of my favorite South Indian food combinations. To me, it’s the Indian equivalent to gravy for your mashed potatoes…it’s just one of those “musts.” Anyway, for such a simple dish, it packs a lot of flavor with its punches of cumin and fenugreek.
