Rich & Creamy Dessert

Must have Dessert

Main Ingredients


Dry Dates





Full Fat Milk

Step 1

Soak dried dates overnight. Then drain in the morning and remove the seed and chop them.

Step 2

Add 1 tablespoon ghee to a frying pan and allow it to melt. Add dry dates and saute for a minute.

Step 3

Add almonds, pistachios and raisins. Give it a stir and fry for couple of minutes. Take out and reserve for later.

Step 4

In the same frying pan, add the remaining ghee & let it melt.

Step 5

Add vermicelli and fry for 2 minutes. Take out and set aside.

Step 6

In a wok (or same large pan), add milk and bring it to boil. Then lower heat and cook for 10-15 minutes until milk thickens. Keep stirring at regular intervals. You can use a non-stick pan to avoid the milk from sticking to the pan.

Step 7

Add reserved toasted dates (save some for garnish), nuts, sugar, cardamom powder, mix well and cook on medium flame for 4-5 minutes, while stirring at regular intervals.

Step 8

Add toasted vermicelli, mix well and cook for 6-8 minutes until desired consistency. However turn off the flame just before you see the perfect consistency, as sheer khurma thickens as it cools.

Step 9

Garnish with roasted nuts, dried rose petals & serve!

 And it's ready!
