Sheer Khorma

Cooks in: 20 Minutes Serves: 2 People

Sheer khurma or Sheer khorma, means ''milk with dates'' in Persian, is a festival vermicelli pudding prepared by Muslims on Eid ul-Fitr  in Afghanistan, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and parts of Central Asia. Dry fruits are cooked along with milk and vermicelli which gives a rich taste to the dish. I used Jowar semiya and honey as a sweetener. The end result was a  healthy pudding.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 Cup Jowar Vermicelli/Semiya
  • 1/4 Cup Chopped Dates
  • 2 Cups Milk
  • 4 Crushed Cardamom
  • 2 Tsp Ghee
  • 1/4 Cup Honey
  • 2 Tsp Rose Water
  • 4 Strands of Saffron
  • 1/4 Cup roasted nuts of almonds, pistas and cashews

Directions:

  1. In a 2 Ltr Pressure Cooker, add vermicelli, dates, milk, cardamom, ghee and saffron strands.
  2. Cook on medium heat for 2 whistles.
  3. Open immediately by carefully removing the pressure manually.
  4. Add honey, rose water and roasted nuts.
  5. Serve warm or chill.
