Easiest pickled Jalapeno Recipe|Homemade pickled Jalapenos

Some 6-7 years back, i took out some seeds of pickled jalapenos from a market bought jar and washed, dried it and sowed it. I wasn’t expecting much, it was just an experiment and today it’s been over 5 years that we never bought pickled jalapenos again because we have so much yield that we have to pickle all of it. Pickling is really simple. You just slice the jalapenos, take some water, vinegar, sugar, salt and a few cloves of garlic and you are good to go.

SheerKhurma |Sevaiyya / Vermicelli Pudding |Fast and Easy dessert| Milk based dessert|Kheer

Look at the beautiful silver leaf, rose petals and pistachios
Sevaiya
Served in a beautiful bowl

Vermicelli kheer or as we call it Sevaiyya or Sheerkhurma is a very simple and fast to make dessert.

I use the thin and already roasted vermicelli but the thick and non-roasted one will also work. I prefer the thin one.

No pudding recipe can be easier or simple to make than this beautiful recipe of Vermicelli.

SheerKhurma means Sheer ie Milk and Khurma means dates so a pudding made of Milk and dates is actually technically SheerKhurma, we add vermicelli and dryfruits to make it richer. The more we cook the milk with the vermicelli, the thicker the pudding will be as vermicelli will release starch. A very basic recipe will have just 4 ingredients ie Milk, Vermicelli, Sugar and dryfruits, So even if you have just these 4 ingredients, try making this dessert and you will love it. There can be many add ons, watch for the extras/optional items in the ingredient list.
