A desert commonly prepared with milk, vermicelli, and nuts and dried fruit is sheer khurma. It’s quite popular in Asian countries.

Also, add some coconuts and raisins and roast it for 2 minutes. Now put thin vermicelli in the pot and roast it.

A sweet dish called gulab jamun is considered to be a celebratory food. You might be wondering how to prepare it as we always bring it from the bakeries and sweet shops.
So let’s prepare it.
We have to prepare jamun and sweet syrup as well.
- milk powder ¾ cup (100 grams)
- All-purpose flour ½ cup (60 grams)

For preparing the gulab jamun recipe, put 3 cups of milk powder,half a cup of all-purpose flour, and half a teaspoon of baking powder in a large bowl. Now mix it.
Additionally, add two tablespoons of ghee and mix well, making the flour moist.
Make a soft dough by combining flour with milk. Here we don’t need to knead the dough. Now the dough is ready. Cover it and leave it for 10 minutes.
Prepare the syrup
Make the sugar syrup by combining two cups of sugar, two cups of warm water, two cardamom pods, and ¼ teaspoon of saffron. Now Mix well and boil it until the syrup gets too sticky.
Once the syrup has boiled, add 1 tsp lemon juice and 1 tsp rose water. Cover the pot and leave it.
Let the dough rest for 10 minutes. After that, prepare the small balls. Make sure not to use the ones which have cracks.
Now take the pot and put oil in it. Put the balls in the oil and cook it on medium flame. Fry the balls until golden brown in colour.
Now take the jamun from the oil and transfer it to hot syrup. Leave it until the balls absorb enough syrup.
Now your gulab jamun is ready.
Sago Custard with jelly
Sago custard is quite different from normal custard. This recipe is something you have not had before. But it’s the best idea to make it on the beautiful occasion of Eid.
- Milk 2 cup
- Sago ¼ cup
- custard powder 2 tablespoon
- Sugar 1/2 cup
- strawberry jelly 1 packet
- Pineapple jelly 1 packet
- 1/4 cup cold milk
Prepare the sago custard
So to prepare the sago custard you have to soak the sago in water for 2 hours before preparing the recipe.
You can prepare the jelly before starting the recipe. So take the jelly and put it in any container and freeze it. Boil the milk slowly in a saucepan and add sugar and sago. Do not add any water until it starts to boil. For 15 minutes or until the sago puffs up and becomes transparent, cook sago with milk. Put 1/4 cup cold milk into a bowl with 2 tablespoons of custard powder. Add the milk mixture to the boiling milk.
The custard must be cooked on low heat for about five to seven minutes, stirring constantly. Take the custard off the heat and let it cool down slightly. Serve the sago custard in the shot glasses, topped with the pineapple jelly cubes, and let it chill for 3 – 4 hours before serving. Also add chopped strawberries, apples, bananas and your choice of nuts.
Sago custard is ready now.
The recipe Shahi tukra is one of the favourites for many people but you can make it to serve guests and for an occasion like eid. But you must be wondering how to make it? So let’s start making.
- bread slices 5
- Milk 3 cups
- sweetened condensed milk 250 gm
- butter 2 – 4 tbsp
- yellow food color
- sweet whipped cream
How to prepare Shahi tukra
Well, shahi tukra can be prepared with the help of bread slices so take 5 bread slides but make sure to cut the edges of the bread. Then butter the bread slices in a flat pan to a golden brown, then flip the sandwiches and add another tbsp. of butter. Most people fry the bread in a typical Shahi turkey recipe. I like toasting it with a little butter instead of frying it. Now add milk to the pan. Heat the milk until it reaches half its original volume on medium heat. and continuously stir it. Now add 250 gm sweetened condensed milk and 10 minutes on low heat. Then turn off the heat. Spread the mixture on toast bread slices and allow the dough to cool for 1 hour.
The recipe for shahi tukray is now ready, so garnish with almonds,and plain cream to enhance the flavour. If you don’t have those ingredients, use regular cream instead.
How can we forget garela when looking for some sweet recipe? Have you ever tried Gajrela recipes? If not then you have missed a very beautiful recipe. So let’s get ready to prepare Gajrela for the upcoming Eid.
- Rice 1/2 cup
- Milk 1.5 kg
- Carrots 2 medium
- Sweetened milk 400 gm
- Almonds 25
- Cardamom powder 1/2 tsp
- Kewra water 2 tbsp (For good smell).
The gajrela recipe can be prepared by soaking 1/2 cup white rice for 2-3 hours, then blending it up with 1 cup of water and 20 almonds. Make sure not to make a paste that is too fine; rather, chop them until you can just see tiny bits of rice and almonds.
Put 1 carrot in a hand grater or blinder and grate. Set aside. Boil milk in a large pan over medium heat for 10 minutes. Add 1/2 tsp cardamom powder while whisking continuously. After 10 minutes, milk will have reduced, add condensed milk into it and stir again for 2 minutes. Next, add chopped rice and almonds we made before. Cook for 15-20 minutes.
Now add food color as necessary, to achieve a light pinkish color…there is no need to add food color if you are using regular cooking ingredients. Stir in grated carrots for 2 minutes on low heat. Add Kewra water and mix well.
The gajrela is ready, all these cooking steps will take 25-30 minutes. It is important to stir it continuously on medium to high heat. The taste of the gajrela depends entirely on how well you stir it, without burning the bottom.
