Sheer Khurma Recipe – Celebrations are so important. They bring so much positivity, love and food.
I have a specific pattern of posting on the blog. Specific days, I mean. But today my husband insisted that we should make, post and obviously eat this awesome dessert. So it becomes a bonus post. Eidi for my mitra(s) (readers).
Recipe Sheer khurma is a thick sewaiyaan kheer prepared with lots of nuts and dates. I did not have dates. So I couldn’t add those but it’s mentioned in the recipe.
The nuts and dates make Sheer Khurma quite sweet. So little sugar is added. However, if you are omitting dates or cutting down the quantity of nuts, you might have to increase the quantity of sugar.
You can use dry fruits of your choice. You can use whole wheat vermicelli.
