Churma Ladoo

Churma is a popular and traditional Rajasthani delicacy. Churma is part of a main meal known as Daal Baati Churama which is very famous in Rajasthan, India. Churma is a prepared using coarse ground wheat flour, cooked with ghee and sugar/jaggry. Although it is a very simple recipe however it takes long time to prepare and requires patience. The Churma balls are cooked on low to medium flame to ensure it is cooked well. There are two ways it can be served as a Churma granules or made as a Ladoo. These ladoo looks very similar to besan ladoo and takes time to make each one of them. These delicious ladoos are also used to worship Lord Ganesha. I am very thankful to my friend for sharing this delicious recipe.

  1. There is a Gujarati (or rather Jain) version which is called Dhosa Na Laddoo. Very popular soon after Paryushan. These laddoos are made from baked flour rather than fried. Churma laddoo look just interesting, will have to try them.
