Mostly this kheer is prepared during occasions and festivals. Vermicelli Kheer is a renowned dessert item during Eid. That version consists of much more dry fruits and nuts, named as Sheer Khurma. 

This kheer is made from Seviyan or Vermicelli along with milk, sugar and, dry fruits of any choice.

The traditional Vermicelli Kheer recipe includes Ghee in roasting the Seviyan. The nutty and smoky aroma of the vermicelli roasted in ghee is worth to die for. 😉

Vermicelli Kheer can be served both warm and chilled. If you want to serve it chilled, you can always store it in the refrigerator. The dish can be preserved for 2-3 days in the refrigerator. But try to avoid storing it for too long as the taste will get reduced.


Some quick tips to prepare Vermicelli Kheer:

  • While frying or roasting the Seviyan or Vermicelli strands in ghee, make sure to stir it continuously so that it does not get burned.
  • Do not replace ghee with some other kinds of oil as it will compromise on the taste and the kheer would not taste that great.
  • You can use any kind of dry fruits in this recipe. I have used cashew nuts and raisins here. If you want to add some other variations like almonds, pistachios please do that.
  • Try to use full-fat milk in this kheer. That would enhance the texture and taste of the kheer. However, if you want to make a healthier version, you can replace the cow milk with almond milk or coconut milk or even low-fat milk.
