|1/4 cup Nylon Vermicelli|
|3 cups Milk|
|1/4 cup Sugar|
|1 tbsp Ghee|
|1 tbsp Chironji|
|Few strands Saffron|
|1/4 tsp Cardamom powder|
Sheer Khurma is a must have dessert during Eid. The main ingredient that is used in Sheer Khurma is the Nylon vermicelli or the very thin type of vermicelli. I was not able to procure it and hence cooked it with the regular roasted vermicelli. This sheer khurma is a very close cousin of our semiya payasam but this kheer is more rich, thick and creamy. Today I have cooked this in an electric pressure cooker and this wonderchef nutri-pot sheer khurma was cooked very easily.
Traditionally this kheer is cooked on a stove top in a big kadai. The milk is slowly simmered to get the rich creamy consistency over slow cooking. But now, most of us are pressed for time and we would love to create the traditional recipes in an easier way without losing the essence of it. hence have cooked the traditional Hyderabadi sheer khurma in an electric pressure cooker which saves me a lot of time and effort and yet gives the same result.
I was a little hesitant to cook payasam or kheer in a pressure cooker for the fear of the milk curdling due to high pressure. But then a little bit of reasoning helped and I used regular milk instead of the rich cream milk which is usually used for the preparation and the milk did not curdle. I have been cooking many dishes in this wonderful electric pressure cooker Nutri-Pot and am very happy with the result. It is so easy and we do not have to babysit and worry. All we need is to set the time and we are good to go.
