BM #113 Week 3 Day 2 - 

Today's traditional sweet comes from the state of Rajasthan. This version of churma laddu is one of the easiest and yummiest, if I may say so.

For these laddus, there is a version of Paratha called Tawa Pudi (shall post the detailed recipe later), which is used as the base. Any other nuts can be added. I have added just some crushed almonds.

These laddus were so tasty that they disappeared in under 5 minutes.

One of my Rajasthani friends was very happy when I told her about these laddus. She went down her memory lane and was narrating how her grandma used to treat them with these simple and yummy laddus.

Ingredients - 

Wheat Flour 1/2 cup
Salt as needed
Water as needed to knead a soft dough
Cardamom Powder 1/2 tsp
Ghee (in semi solid form) 2-3 tsp
Almonds handful
Sugar 1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp (adjust as per preference)

Method Of Preparation -

In a mixing bowl, add wheat flour, salt and water and knead into a soft dough. Cover and set aside for a few minutes.

Divide the dough into 2 equal portions.

Knead each portion and roll into a 4 inch disc. Apply ghee generously and sprinkle cardamom Powder. Fold the edges so that the ghee doesn't ooze out.

Dust some flour and roll it into a thick paratha.

Heat a griddle and cook on both sides spreading ghee on both sides until they are golden brown on both sides.

Remove from the griddle and allow to cool.

Continue with the rest of the dough. 

Meanwhile powder the sugar and coarsely crush almonds and transfer into a mixing bowl.

Tear the parathas into smaller pieces and pulse them in a mixer so they resemble bread crumbs.

Add the crumbs to the sugar mixture. Knead well and because of the sugar and ghee, it will easily form a stiff dough.

Pinch 8-9 portions of the dough and roll them as laddus. Allow them to dry for a few minutes and they are ready to be enjoyed.
