The Most Famous Eid Delicacy "Sheer-Khurma" A traditional rich milk and vermicelli dessert loaded with fried nuts and dates. Learnt from my mom and MIL making at Eid-ul-fitr and Eid-al-Adha. Back home in Hyderabad we get special vermicelli which are salty in taste and that makes completely delicious Sheer-khurma. Yes those vermicelli are not available everywhere. We make a large batch of finley sliced nuts called "maghziyaat" few days before eid by soaking almonds, pistachios, cashewnuts and chironjee. Full cream milk is simmer down along with strands of Saffron till you get rich color and little thick consistency, Vermicelli and finely chopped nuts are roasted in pure homemade ghee for amazing flavor. Usually saffron is not added in sheer-khurma but I like mine with that rich color and taste.
