Diwali is around the corner and parties too. Lots of preparations and work has to be done when one is hosting a party. Nothing is more pleasing than easy yet presentable party recipes! Cherry on the churma is one such recipe. Churma has a long shelf life. Mine has always lasted for a week, it would get over by then, otherwise, it would last even longer. And therefore whenever I plan a party I prepare churma in much advance and then this dessert can be fixed in a few minutes. Here is all you need to make Cherry on the Churma:
Churma: Rajasthani churma can be prepared with whole wheat flour or gram flour. For this recipe, I have used the whole wheat flour churma, i.e. the authentic Rajasthani churma. The churma in lose form is required for this recipe instead of ladoo form.
Homemade cream cheese substitute: It is so simple to make the cream cheese substitute in your kitchen with just 2 ingredients. It can be used in so many recipes. Although it doesn’t equate the taste of original cream cheese it costs much less and can be prepared in the desired quantity.
Cherries: I have used canned cherry for this recipe. The cherries have been pureed to a chunky mix and used. Further, the whole cherry was used for the garnish.
Flavoring: Cherries add a lot of flavors and lovely twist to the churma. However, while making the cream cheese lemon zest has been added which adds a lot of freshness to the dessert.
