Easy Milk Seviyan Recipe/ Vermicelli kheer

Hello friends

Is there any reason to debate? Sweet Vermicelli  cooked in milk tastes delicious even though it has so many different names. Humko toh khaane se matlab, naam me kya rakha hai. Right? This vermicelli pudding is sometimes referred as seviya kheer or seviya or Sheer kurma too.
Sheer Khurma which literally means “milk with dates” in Persian, is a vermicelli pudding prepared during the holy month of Ramadan or on the last day which is celebrated as Eid by Muslims around the world.

Any which way you call it, the end result  a delicious milky dessert served with love in a bowl. Can be savoured hot or cold. Some methods are a labour of love.

1/2 tbsp Raisins
1 tbsp chopped Cashew nuts
1 tbsp chopped Almonds
