Eid┬áMubarak┬áto all my Muslim Friends and my Blog’s readers!!!! I have always prepared the┬ásemiya recipe in┬áa very basic manner (Semiya recipe here), like I have learnt through my Mom and these semiya’s are one of the most prefered desserts at home. But this time I tried them with milk & dates – the delicious Sheer Khurma! I was amazed with the flavour and the richness of this dessert. I kept this post for a while deliberately in my draft so that I can share it with my friends and readers on the occasion of EID┬áalong with my EID┬áwishes :)! I also prepare many a times methi semiya at home, my kids are not that fond of these but rest of us in the family love these methi semiya too. For all EID RECIPES check HERE!
The softness of dates and chironji┬áwas new to me in this semiya┬áor Sheer Khurma┬árecipe and I loved the flavor. I added 1/2 cup condensed┬ámilk to this to add more richness to the Sheer Khurma, however you can either add khoya┬áor prepare┬áit┬áwith┬ásimply full cream milk also. I adapted the basic recipe of this Sheer Khurma from┬áVah┬áRe Vah video, amazingly described by the chef in the video along with his muslim friend helping with the recipe, do check┬áhis recipe here.┬áI did a little change though in this wonderful recipe as per my own taste.
You can also alternatively┬áadd in few strands of saffron┬ábut I avoided adding saffron┬áto this sheer┬ákhurma. Instead I added half a spoon of cardamom powder to it, for added aroma and flavor. I used the regular Vermicelli’s I had at home but for this you can always┬áuse the thin Bambino vermicelli’s, break them and cook them gently because these thin vermicelli’s are too soft, so if you stir them too often┬áthey will become too soggy.
Enjoy this┬ádelicious Sheer Khurma┬ádessert recipe for Eid┬áal-Fitr┬áwith your loved ones, EID┬áMUBARAK to all of you ones again & Stay Blessed!!!!
