Sheer khurma is a sweet noodle soup served by Muslims in Indian and other South Asian countries to guests during the holy month of Ramadan. The recipe originally comes from Mughal-India.


For 12 servings:


  1. Heat the ghee in a large pot over a low flame.
  2. Add the cashew nuts to the ghee, and fry until browned.
  3. Turn off the flame and add the raisins. When the raisins swell up, take both them and the cashews out of the ghee with a spoon and set aside.
  4. Switch the low flame back on and heat the ghee. Add the vermicelli and fry, stirring so it turns golden-brown. Watch it carefully so it does not burn.
  5. Pour in the milk and water. Add the cashews and raisins back into the mixture.
  6. Add the sliced dates and almonds. Cook for about 2 minutes, or until the vermicelli starts to get flexible; then add sugar.
  7. Keep on the low flame for another 2 minutes, then add cream and cardamom powder.
  8. Heat just a little longer and mix well.
  9. Serve hot.
