Tips to Make Sheer Khurma

  • In a matter of seconds, the nuts and dry fruits can get completely burnt. As a result, when frying them, use extra caution. Also, rather than finely slivering them, sliver them thickly. Remove them from the pot as soon as they are light brown, because they will continue to brown in the residual heat.
  • Some prefer their sheer khurma in a watery consistency, while others like it thick. By adding more or less milk, you can alter the consistency.
