Sheer Khurma

Sheer Khurma literally means”milk with dates” in Persian, in this festival vermicelli pudding prepared by Muslims on Eid ul-Fitr. It is a traditional Muslim festive dessert, for celebrations. This dish is made from dried dates.This special dish is served on the morning of Eid day in the family after the Eid prayer throughout the day to all the visiting guests.

The main ingredients used in Sheer Khurma are vermicelli, whole milk, sugar, and dates.In my version of Sheer khurma to enhance flavor, I have added cardamom powder, cashew nuts pistachios, almonds, saffron & raisins.
