  • In a pot add ghee and cardamom, let it crackle then add vermicelli.
  • Fry for few seconds. Add milk and sugar. Now leave it on low flame. Keep on stirring.
  • Milk will reduce in quantity then add condensed milk or qalaqnd. If you are using qalaqnd or condensed milk then adjust sugar according to your taste.
  • Soak almonds and pistachio n hot water and remove skin. Chop them fine.
  • Grate coconut with grater. ( do not use desiccated coconut , it will not give a required taste)

    Without Sheer Khorma, it feels like something is missing on Eid. It’s a must in our home! Yours looks great. Thank you for participating in Eid Eats and Eid Mubarak to you and your family!

    Oh Ainy, you have shared the Queen of Eid Foodfare! No Eid is complete without a bowl of Sheer! In fact, I am enjoying a warm bowlful as I write this 🙂
    Eid Mubarak to you and your family! And thank you for participating in Eid Eats! 🙂
