Eid Mubarak to all my Muslim Friends and my Blog’s readers!!!! I have always prepared the semiya recipe in a 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 along with my EID wishes :)! 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 was new to me in this semiya or Sheer Khurma recipe and I loved the flavor. I added 1/2 cup condensed milk to this to add more richness to the Sheer Khurma, however you can either add khoya or prepare it with simply full cream milk also. I adapted the basic recipe of this Sheer Khurma from Vah Re Vah video, amazingly described by the chef in the video along with his muslim friend helping with the recipe, do check his recipe here. I did a little change though in this wonderful recipe as per my own taste.
You can also alternatively add in few strands of saffron but I avoided adding saffron to this sheer khurma. 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 use 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 they will become too soggy.
Enjoy this delicious Sheer Khurma dessert recipe for Eid al-Fitr with your loved ones, EID MUBARAK to all of you ones again & Stay Blessed!!!!
