sheer khurma recipe / vermicelli kheer

Sheer khurma is a traditional dessert prepared during Ramadan. This pudding is prepared by Muslims as festive breakfast or dessert. This kheer is rich, delicious and creamy. It is prepared with lots of dry fruits, fine vermicelli and dates. This requires little effort to chop the dry fruits but completely worth all the efforts.
