Eid Special Hyderabadi Sheer Khurma Recipe in Telugu | Sheer Korma Ramzan Special

Eid Special Hyderabadi Sheer khurma Recipe in Telugu or Sheer Korma Ramzan Special is a yummy dessert delicacy usually prepared on the occasion of Eid or Ramzan in all muslim house holds. Sheer Khurma (Korma) by name mean Sheer i.e. Milk and Khurma i.e. Dates. So in short this is a milk based dessert where Dates is the key ingredient. 

This recipe will be very yummy, muslims keep fasting in the month of ramzan. They consume food before sunrise and after sunset. And in the remaining time they neither eat nor drink even water too. So they consume energy rich foods when they eat, in order to stay healthy and hungry-free during the time they keep fasting. And the current dessert is one such recipe.

Sheer Korma is a traditional vermicelli kheer prepared on the eve of Eid or Ramzan. This kheer is prepared not by using the regular vermicelli which is available in the markets but also by using special vermicelli which is usually sold and available in the markets only in the season of Ramzan. This special vermicelli is called as "Pheni" and will be very thin and fragile, available in both white and brown colours. 

I have added only sugar to bring in sweetness apart from the sweetness from dates. You can also add sweetened khova i.e. mawa too. Also you can add some condensed milk. But if using khova or condensed milk then you should reduce the sugar quantity.
