Sheer khurma or Meethi Seviyan (sweet vermicelli preparation) is a very delicious and traditional dessert made for festivals. In the city of Lucknow various seviyan delicacies are made for Eid. For this recipe Seviyan are roasted in pure ghee. Then cooked in milk with nuts and raisins. Traditionally dates are added in this sweet preparation to enhance the flavor. I have added sugar instead of dates.

I have used 2% milk in this preparation as we get pure organic milk in our city and even 2% milk is quite thick, however, I will suggest you add full cream milk. It’s easy to make this dessert. It’s may families of one the most popular dessert. Try this delicious meethi seviyan recipe and please do share your valuable comments. Happy cooking, Shuchi

Some Tips/ Suggestions:
