LUCKNOWI SHEER KHURMA
As the EID celebration has come to an end...I still decided to share my famous SHEER KHURMA's recipe...as many people in personal have asked me that you please share the recipe...
We cannot make the way it is made in EID..
So i thought lets write it down....
Kyunki EID to or bhi aani hai in sha allah and kabhi kabhi yunhi meetha khaane ka mann karta hai and its one most of the easiest dessert that can be made very very easily.
I make this SHEER KHURMA using BANARSI SEWAIYAN......so let me first explain what is banarsi sewaiyan. Banarsi sewaiyan are very very thin and fine quality of sewaiyan and once cooked nicely it kind of feelS like melt in the mouth type of texture.
We get these from INDIA...especially LUCKNOW and are also available in KANPUR..bhai thats what i know..but i think its called banarsi so BANARAS mein to zaroor milti hogi..
You can make it using other type of sewaiyan also..using banarsi is not mandatory..ye to bus hum logon ki zubaan pe uska flavour chadh gaya hai so hum mehnat karke INDIA se mangate hain..if someone is coming or we get while coming back after visiting INDIA.
LETS GET TO THE RECIPE-
PREP TIME-15-20 MINUTES
COOKING TIME- 1 AND 1/2 HOURS
SUGAR-1 AND 1/2 CUP (can be adjusted according to taste)
FOX NUT (MAKHANA)- 1 CUP
KEWRA- FEW DROPS
GARNISH WITH FEW CHOPPED ALMONDS AND CASHEWS
BOIL 3.78 LITERS OF MILK IN A BIG POT.ONCE MILK COMES TO BOIL ADD SUGAR TO IT AND LET IT COOK TILL SUGAR DISSOLVES COMPLETELY.
KEEP STIRRING IN BETWEEN SO THAT SUGAR DOESN'T STICKS TO THE BOTTOM OF THE PAN.
TILL THE TIME MILK AND SUGAR ARE BEING COOKED TAKE A PAN..ADD GHEE TO IT..LET IT GET WARM THEN ADD CASHEWS..ALMONDS AND FOX NUT AND ROAST THEM TILL NICE AND FRAGRANT.
AFTER ROASTING THE NUTS LET IT COOL DOWN COMPLETELY..ONCE IT COOLS DOWN GROUND IT COARSELY IN THE MIXER....YOU WILL GET A COARSE DRY FRUITS POWDER.
NOW ADD THIS POWDER TO THE MILK WHICH IS STILL COOKING...LET THE MILK COOK ON SLOW FLAME TILL THIS DRY FRUIT POWDER BECOMES SOFT AND THEN ADD 1/4 CUP OF SEWAIYAN AND COOK TILL SEWAIYAN BECOME SOFT AND MILK HAS REDUCED TO 1/2 OF WHAT IT WAS BEFORE....
ONCE SEWIAYAN HAVE COOKED AND MILK HAS REDUCED CLOSE THE GAS..ADD FEW DROPS OF KEWRA.
GARNISH IT WITH CHOPPED ALMONDS AND CASHEWS.
I LIKE TO SERVE IT COLD SO I MAKE IT A DAY BEFORE AND STORE IT IN FRIDGE...THAT GIVES IT A DISTINCT AND AMAZING TASTE. YOU CAN SERVE IT HOT TOO..THAT DEPENDS COMPLETELY ON YOUR PREFERENCES.
