SheerKhorma, an Eid Delicacy.



The end of Ramadan is celebrated with the Eid-ul-Fitr,which means Feast of
the Fast-Breaking. Eid is a happy,relaxed time after a solemn month. But we don't forget all we thought and lessons we learned during Ramadan. We remember what is important to us : God,friends,family, and the needy. We say to all we meet,Eid Mubarak. Happy Eid! and blessing to all!
Sheerkhorma is a rich dessert prepared on Eid,made with roasted thin vermicelli in milk garnished with loads of dry fruits.I'm not worried about calories in this dessert, which I make just once a year.
See Recipe

Ingredients
1/2 a gallon of milk
1 1/2 cup Thin Vermicelli,broken to smaller pieces(Available in Asian and Middle Eastern Stores)
3/4 cup Sweetened Condensed Milk or 1 cup Sugar(Add more if needed)
2 whole cardamoms
1/4 cup each of Almonds,Cashews,dry dates,Pistachios and Raisins
1/3 cup Ghee(Clarified Butter)

Method
Blanch and fry the dry fruits
In pot of boiling water ,drop the dry fruits and simmer for about 10 minutes. Drain and peel the almonds and pistachios,remove the seeds from the dry dates. Slice the almonds,pistachios ,dry dates and halve the cashews.
Heat ghee in a kadai(deep pan) and fry all each of the dry fruits separately in batches until nice and brown. And set aside for garnish.
Roast the Vermicelli
In large pan add a tablespoon of ghee and roast vermicelli until nice and brown,set aside.
Boil Milk
Boil milk with cardamoms in a large pot on medium heat to prevent scalding. Mix in the condensed milk or sugar ,let simmer for few minutes while stirring occasionally. After about 5 minutes stir in the roasted vermicelli and cook for another 5 minutes before turning off the heat. Garnish with dry fruits and serve warm.
