Eid al Fitr is a special and memorable time where families and friends come together to celebrate or mark the end of ramadan. If you are looking for an easy recipe that is not only delicious but will also impress your guests- you have come to the right place!

Sheer Kurma is a rich vermicelli pudding which is traditionally prepared by muslims for Eid ul Fitr. The dish literally translates to ‘milk with dates’. It is sweet and creamy – a real treat when it comes to celebrating!

So, here is what you will need.

2. 750 ml milk
3. 50 gms khoya
4. 1/2 cup sugar
5. 150 gms vermicelli
6. Dry fruits

10. 8-10 raisins
11. 1 tsp chironji
12. 8-10 saffron strands
13. 1-2 cloves
14. 1tsp cardamom powder
