Sheer Khurma - An Eid delicacy

Sheer Khurma

Eid is just round the corner and the celebrations are not complete without a sweet. Talking about sweet’s what better than a Sheer Khurma. This traditional Mughlai dessert pudding is made with vermicelli in added flavors and milk. It is decorated with dry fruit slivers and served with love. I still remember my childhood days when we used to look forward to my friends bringing this sweet freshly prepared in their homes to us. The richness and sweetness makes for a great festival recipe and most homes have had some or the other recipe passed on from their ancestors. However if you do not have a recipe, do not worry, here I tell you how to make a yummy and delicious Sheer Khurma so you can enjoy the festival of Eid with your friends and family. Eid Mubarak!
