Sheer Kurma *** Eid Mubarak ***
It’s soon going to be that lovely time of hugging everyone wishing “Eid Mubarak” .During this occasion we never forget to take “Eiddi” (earnings) from elders neither we can resists yummy delicious beautiful tempting sheer Kurma. At my childhood I would go to my muslim friends home and finish bowls and bowls of Sheer kurma. After marrying into a muslim family, I realised that while Eid is much more than sevaiyan; it is incomplete without it. Right in the morning
we make a huge pot of Sheer Kurma to be served all day to our neighbors ,friends and guest visiting home to wish us.
