Sheer Khurma - Sheer Korma Recipe | Ramzan / Ramadan Recipes

Sheer Korma - Ramadan Recipe
Sheer Khurma is a Mugalai traditional dish made during the festival of Eid / Ramzan / Ramadan.Sheer Khurma / Sheer Korma is 'Sweetened milk with dates'...this is a authentic version of vermicelli pudding made for the occassion. I was about to miss posting for ramzan...but my luck....2 days back when I was casually going through mittus school diary, happenned to see friday was a holiday for Ramzan....and there it striked me that I didnt prepare any dish for the festival so quickly browsed around and found this and seviyan recipe which is similar to our semiya payasam so preferred this Sheer Korma recipe.

And thank you so much to each one of you who enquired about the issue and sent encouraging words though mail / messages / comments etc....I never thought my voice was this loud...:o with all your support and concerning words, the issue stands small to me.....yes I feel way better now....:) Now lets on to learn how to make sheer khorma shall we?!

Advance Ramzan wishes !!

My Notes:

  • The kheer thickens with time so switch it off accordingly.
  • Actually for sheer khurma they use a even more finer variety of vermicelli......but I did not get it so used what I had in hand.
  • No need to chop the charoli nuts you can add it as such.You can even add a pinch of saffron strands for extra flavour.
  • For a more richer version use 1/8 cup cream and 1/8 cup condensed milk while simmering the milk.
  • As we are using dates I reduced the quantity of sugar and it was fine for us. If you prefer more sweet then use 1/4 cup sugar.
