notes:

  • dates and raisins add a lot of sweetness to the milk, so add sugar accordingly.
  • you can also garnish sheer khurma with saffron strands or rose petals, dry fruits, powdered cardamom.
  • if you are using dry dates soak overnight to soften them. or cook in milk without sauting in ghee.
