by Hemant Shah 10 Apr 2024

Creating a delectable bowl of Sheer Khurma is an art that combines the richness of milk with the luxurious blend of mixed dry fruits. This traditional dessert, popular during festive occasions, especially Eid, is a testament to the culinary heritage that spans generations. Let's delve into the art of making Sheer Khurma, ensuring we incorporate organic, best, and premium quality dry fruits to elevate this dish to a gourmet experience.

Introduction to Sheer Khurma

Sheer Khurma, literally translated to "milk with dates" in Persian, is much more than its name suggests. It's a rich, creamy vermicelli pudding loaded with the goodness of milk and various dry fruits flavored with cardamom and saffron. What sets this dessert apart is the use of organic and premium-quality dry fruits, which enhances its flavor and nutritional value.


  • 1-liter Full-fat milk
  • ½ cup Vermicelli (preferably thin)
  • ¼ cup Sugar (adjust to taste)
  • A pinch of Saffron
  • ½ teaspoon Cardamom powder
  • ¼ cup Dates, finely chopped
  • ½ cup Mixed organic chopped dry fruits (almonds, pistachios, cashews, raisins, dried apricots)
  • 2 tablespoons Ghee (clarified butter)
  • Rose petals for garnishing (optional)


  1. Preparation of Dry Fruits: Begin by selecting the best quality dry fruits. Soak the almonds, pistachios, and cashews in warm water for about an hour. This makes them easier to peel and enhances the texture of the pudding. Ensure the dry fruits you choose are organic and of premium quality to ensure the dish is delicious and packed with the best nutrients.
  2. Roasting Vermicelli: Heat ghee in a heavy-bottomed pan over medium heat. Add the vermicelli and roast until golden brown. Keep stirring to ensure it doesn't burn. This step imparts a beautiful aroma and a deep flavour to the Sheer Khurma.
  3. Boiling Milk: In another pan, bring the milk to a boil. Lower the heat and let it simmer until it thickens slightly. This concentrates the flavour, making the base of the Sheer Khurma richer.
  4. Infusing Flavors: Add the roasted vermicelli, sugar, saffron, and cardamom powder to the simmering milk. Stir well and simmer for 10 minutes until the vermicelli is cooked and the milk is creamy.
  5. Adding Dry Fruits:  Now, stir in the chopped dates, almonds, pistachios, cashews, raisins, and apricots. These organic and premium-quality dry fruits add texture and an incomparable depth of flavor.
  6. Simmering: Let the Sheer Khurma simmer for another 5 minutes, allowing all the flavors to meld together beautifully. The key is to keep the heat low and give the ingredients time to impart their essences into the milk.
  7. Garnishing: Finally, garnish your Sheer Khurma with rose petals or best-quality chopped dry fruits. This makes the dish visually appealing and adds texture.

Serving Suggestions

Serve the Sheer Khurma warm or chilled, according to preference. It can be a sumptuous end to a festive meal or a splendid treat.
Using organic dry fruits, best-quality dry fruits, and premium-quality dry fruits elevates this traditional dessert into a luxurious nourishing and indulgent treat.


Crafting the perfect bowl of Sheer Khurma is about balancing flavours, textures, and nutritional value. By choosing organic and premium-quality dry fruits, you're not just preparing a dessert; you're weaving a tapestry of taste rich in heritage and health.
