Sheer Khurma Recipe

INGREDIENTS 500 ml milk 1 tbsp ghee 1 – 1.5 tbsp sugar or as required (dates and raisins add sweetness too so, add the sugar accordingly) ½ cup broken sevaiyaan (vermicelli) 7-8 cashews, broken (kaju) 8-9 almonds, sliced (badam) 8-9 unsalted pistachios (pistas) 8-9 dates, seedless, chopped 4 green cardamoms (choti elaichi) (crushed to a powder) ½ - 1 tbsp chironji (charoli) 1 tbsp golden raisins (kishmish) ½ - 1 tbsp rose water


  1. Roast the sevaiyaan till golden and keep aside. You can roast the sevaiyaan in ghee for better taste.
  2. In the same pan, heat ghee and add chopped dry fruits and sauté for 3-4 minutes, stirring often.
  3. Heat milk in a saucepan and let it come to a boil. Lower the flame and simmer for 8-10 minutes, till the milk slightly thickens.
  4. Add the roasted sevaiyaan and sugar to the milk and simmer till the sevaiyaan are cooked and have become soft for about 8-10 minutes on a low flame.
  5. The milk will also thicken and reduce in volume.
  6. Add the whole dry fruit mixture and cardamom powder.
  7. Switch off the flame and stir.
  8. Taste the Sheer Khurma and add more sugar, if required.
  9. Serve the delectable dessert hot, warm or chilled.
  10. You can also garnish with saffron strands/rose petals/ dry fruits/cardamom powder.
Recipe Notes/Suggestions: If you are using dry dates then don’t sauté them in ghee, instead cook them in milk. You can also soak overnight to soften them. Other than the Sheer Khurma recipe, there are some other easy Ramadan recipes that you can try making at home too, like:
