  • Roast them in 1 tbsp ghee and set them aside for later.
  • Roast the sewai in 1 tbsp ghee till it changes colour and keep it aside. You can skip this step if you are using roasted sewai.
  • Heat the milk over a low flame.
  • Add the cardamom powder.
  • When the milk is lukewarm, take a cup and set it aside. Add milk and coconut milk powder to it. Mix till there are no lumps. Your slurry is ready.
  • When the milk comes to a boil, add the roasted sewai. Stir and cook over low heat.
  • Once the milk starts to boil again, add the dry fruits.
  • Add the milk and coconut milk powder slurry.
  • Once the sewai softens and the milk starts reducing, add the raisins and turn the flame off.
  • Transfer into a bowl and let it cool down a little. Add jaggery and stir until it dissolves. Your delicious Sheer Khurma is ready!

Note: Do not add jaggery to piping hot milk or it will curdle.
