Chef tips:

  1. Ensure that you use a heavy bottomed pan to avoid the milk from burning.
  2. To further enhance the richness and flavour of Zaffrani Sheer Khurma ,you may add dates and raisins to it.
  3. To save time you may use roasted vermicelli, clarified butter shall then only be used to sauté the slivered nuts , hence quantity of clarified needs to be reduced.
