Sheer Khurma

For day 2, am here with another popular  and true classic dish "Sheer Khurma". Sheer means milk and khurma means dates. This is a  Vermicelli Pudding prepared by Muslims on  Eid. It is a traditional  dessert for celebrations. . This dish is made from dried dates, milk, sugar, other dry fruits and vermicelli.

We need:

Vermicelli 1cup
Milk 4 cups
Sugar 2 cups (as per ur taste)
Elachi powder 1/2 sp
Dried dates 1/4 cup
Cahsew nuts and raisins 1/4 cup
Chiroli 2sps
Any other dry fruits as per ur taste
Ghee 1/4cup


Soak the dry dates in water for 3 to 4 hrs.
Then cut them into long thing slices.
Take a large pan and boil milk.
Mean while in a small pan heat ghee and add all dry fruits.
Fry them till golden brown and remove.
If u dont have the roasted vermicelli, then roast the vermicelli too in the ghee after removing the dry fruits.
When milk is half boiled add sugar and elachi powder and mix well.
Now add roasted vermicelli and all dry fruits.
Mix well and let it come to boil.
Switch off flame and cool down.
Serve hot ot cold.
