Rajasthani Churma Recipe – When we serve dal bati, a side of this is the best accompaniment. Hence it is called dal bati churma.
While making the bati, I have made few extra to make churma. Yes, batis are crushed and mixed with sugar, ghee and nuts. It is that simple.
There are few variation to making it. My mother-in-law makes it by frying the dough dumplings. Sometimes she makes ladoo out of it. While this one is made from whole wheat bati which are baked in oven.
This Rajasthani churma is semi-sweet dish. Meaning it is not sweet like dessert. That’s why it pairs perfectly with lightly spiced dal bati.
You can enjoy this as is in original form (coarse powder form). Or you can go step further and make ladoos. In that case, you need to add more ghee and sugar.
