sheer kurma is a rich dessert consisting of various dry fruits, ghee and milk. this is an easy recipe and there are different variations of making sheer kurma. in this variation, i have roasted the vermicelli first and then added it to milk. the vermicelli is then cooked for some more minutes till they become soft. as the vermicelli-milk mixture thickens towards the end, the dry fruits which have been fried in ghee are added.

i just needed to add 1.5 tbsp sugar in this sheer korma as the dates i used were very sweet. both dates and raisins contribute to the sweetness. so adjust the proportion of sugar accordingly and as per your taste. also use the fine variety of vermicelli.

this delicious sweet pudding is an excellent dessert to be made in winters as it has lot of dry fruits which give a lot of heat & warmth to the body. best to have the sheer kurma hot or warm during winters.

in india, many sweet pudding are made with rice or vermicelli during festive occasions. few of the popular festival pudding recipes are rice kheer, seviyan kheer and phirni recipe.

  1. Hello Amit Dassanna,
    The last comment is almost 1year back. Am not sure if this comment will get read or not…….all the same, posting my comment below:
    I made the toddler’s version of this above recipe.
    First I dry roasted the dry-cleaning and fine-ground in the mixer. Then added it to the sevaiyan while roasting it in ghee. Then added to it, the dates n raisins’ paste and then added the milk to the same. And boiled it until the sevaiyan were all done. Then also added a little bit (2 spoons, a little bigger than teaspoon) of milkmaid. Needn’t require to add any sugar after that.
    It turned out good for my toddler who considers the dry fruits as ‘speedbreakers’ while eating and therefore would avoid to eat altogether.
    Thanks.
    I refer to your recipes very frequently. I keep going to your recipes as all the ingredients required to achieve the flavors are generally available with me and you don’t much go for exotic or fancy ingredients. Keep up the good work 🙂

    • shubada, i have not received any comment from you lately or even before. thats a nice variation you made for your toddler – fuss free eating 🙂
      thanks for sharing.

      also thanks for the feedback on recipes. i personally avoid using fancy ingredients as most readers will not get access to these ingredients in india easily. but having said that at times, due to readers’ requests i do try to develop and then add some recipes with ingredients that are not easily available everywhere in india eg quinoa or chia seeds etc.

  2. a very good recipe

    • thankyou manali.
