Sheer Khurma is a traditional Muglai Dessert Recipe made during festivities, especially during the occasions of Eid and Ramadan. Sheer means Milk and Khurma means Dates (Khajoor). Lets see the recipe details, instructions, ingredients and method to make it.
It is a delicious pudding made with milk and vermicelli as main ingredients and dry fruits, saffron are added to enhance the richness. ‘Sheer’ means ‘Milk’ and ‘Khurma’ means ‘Dates’ in Persian language, hence in most places, Dates (or Chuara) are often added in this dessert and this is also one of the prominent dry fruit consumed during Islamic festivities.
I still remember those days when I used to visit my Muslim friends on Eid or Ramzan and got to enjoy elaborate feast with variety of kebabs, cutlets, puddings and so on. Sheer Khurma always had a unique place in those platters.
Let me tell you, these Iftaar Parties are a real treat!
Did you know, ‘Vermicelli’ is cooked several ways to make desserts. At some places you would notice that it is cooked with sugar syrup or ‘Zarda’ without adding any milk which tastes fantastic, whereas it is also made with milk, seasonal fruits, jelly and known as Lab-e-Shireen which is an equally exciting recipe for the kids. We would be sharing all of these delicious recipes in future, but as of now let us check out this beautiful recipe to make Sheer Khurma.
