Churma or Choorma recipe

Step by step recipe to prepare Churma or Choorma recipe. Churma is a great accompaniment to the trio dish DAL, BAATI CHURMA. Prepared with wheat dough balls which are baked in oven and then reduced to crumbs to make this scrumptious sweet. Ghee is added in abundance to all the Rajasthani dishes and Churma is no exception at all. More the ghee the softer the Churma turns out to be. But one can always reduce the amount of ghee that goes in this recipe.

Knead a soft and pliable dough and form them into dough balls. Place them on a baking sheet and bake them into baatis– learn how to bake baatis,step by step recipe. Later baati crumbs are roasted in ghee and desiccated coconut, dried nuts and cardamom powder are added to perk up the flavors. The end result is a tasty and delectable Rajasthani sweet – CHURMA!!

TIP – Churma can be stored in an airtight container for 2 weeks. The texture may change over the coarse of time – just add 1 teaspoon of ghee and warm it in a microwave for 20-30 seconds and churma will retain its texture back.

    The sugar used in the photo is clearly granulated sugar, not powdered sugar. Which should be used???
