Step By Step Instructions With Photos For Churma Recipe
Take 2 cups of Gehun Ka Atta or Whole Wheat Flour in a wide vessel. Add 3/4 cup desi ghee to the flour and mix thoroughly.
Add 1 cup water to the mixture and knead the mixture into a tight dough. You can also add milk instead of the water.
Divide the dough into small equal balls (around the size of a tennis ball) and press them to into the shape of your fist.
Heat desi ghee in a pan for frying. Add the dumplings to the pan and fry them in batches on low-medium heat setting for about 10-15 minutes till they turn golden brown. The ghee should not be too hot, otherwise they will not cook properly from inside.
When the dumplings are cooked, take them out and drain the excess ghee on kitchen rolls. Break them into small pieces and set aside to let them cool for 10 minutes.
Grind all the pieces into a fine powder in a food processor. Then add 3/4 cups of powdered sugar and mix well.
You can also add chopped dry fruits like almonds and cashews to the mixture. Churma is ready. You can store it in an airtight container for a few days. You can also add a little extra ghee and shape it into balls to make Churma Ladoos.
