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.
