What are churma ladoo?

Earthy and divine! Wheat balls crushed, sweetened and bathed with ghee! Churma Ladoo Recipe, a must preparation at my place on the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi, teej etc. In Rajasthan it is usually served with dal baati recipe. It is usually high in calories. 

Let’s talk about the ingredients for churma ladoo recipe

Well, there are many versions of Churma ladoo. I have prepared the baatis for Churma in the tandoor. You can also deep fry them or bake them. Further, you can use gram flour (besan) instead of whole wheat flour to make Churma laddu. I like my Churma/Churma ladoos plain. But for bhog (to please Gannu) I added dry fruits. They are optional. You can also flavour the Churma with any fruit pulp and essence, gulkand and so on. I personally like the Churma plain…it brings the earthiness, that is the thing I love about Churma. It’s completely optional to bind the Churma into ladoos. You can keep it as it is or bind into ladoos. However, ladoos ask for more ghee.
