Preparing a Sheer Khurma


  • Vermicelli: 1 packet (make pieces)

  • Milk: 1 Liter

  • Sugar: 1 cup / as needed

  • Dry Dates: 5 to 6 (sliced)

  • Almonds: as required (chopped)

  • Pistachios: as required (chopped)

  • Green cardamoms: 5 to 6

  • Crushed Coconut: 2 to 3 tablespoons

  • Oil: 5 to 6 tablespoons

For Garnishing:

  • Almonds: as required (chopped)

  • Pistachios: as required (chopped)


  1. Soak dry dates in water for half to one hour. Make thin slices when they are soft enough, also chop almonds and pistachios.
  2. Boil milk in a pan. When boiled, add sugar, green cardamoms (2 to 3) and cook for 15 minutes on low heat.
  3. Heat oil in pan for 2 to 3 minutes and crackle cardamoms. Add almonds, pistachios and dry dates until golden fry. Add vermicelli and fry for 2 to 3 minutes; add crushed coconut. Keep stirring the ladle otherwise vermicelli will burn.
  4. Sheer Khorma is ready.


Chop almonds and pistachios and fry. Sprinkle and serve.


  • If you don't like more vermicelli in milk, use half packet and store rest of it in an airtight shopper or container. When you want to cook again, fried vermicellis would be ready to use. Just boil milk and add it. It will be cooked fast.

  • In summers, sheer khurma gets stale fast so cook as much as you need. Fried vermicellies can be cooked again quickly.

  • You can also use khoya while preparing vermicelli milk.

My mother used to cook me sheer khurma when I was small but since she is not here anymore, my aunt brings it during Eid. Just recently I discovered how to make sheer khurma and it magically turned out to taste the same as my mother. I’ve never seen my father so happy when eating something. Thank you!
