Choorma


Dal batti choorma are the main dishes in kacha khaana of Rajasthani food. I'm learning them from our cook who is an expert in this. Of this trio, choorma is the sweet dish and my favourite. It can be made in the form of laddoo or burfi (the diamond shaped ones) or choorma, the granule form. The granule form of choorma is slightly messy to eat. So I prefer the firm shaped ones. Here I choose the ladoo form as my l'il one likes laddoos.  So many such delectable dishes to learn about on  Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#60

Ingredients:

1. Wheat flour: 1cup
2. Milk: to knead
3. Sugar: 50gms
4. Coconut powder: 15 gms
5. Dry fruits: as much as you like
6. Cardamom: 5nos
7: Ghee: 50 ml

Method:

1. Add the milk to the flour and mix it. Now add a little water and make tight dough (like for pooris) and leave it for 10 to 15 minutes.

2. Take a lemon sized dough flatten it with hand to make a small and thick poori.

3. Heat ghee in a kadai, fry the pooris in slow fire turning once in awhile. Remove them when they turn nice golden brown.Let them cool.

4. Break the fried pooris into small pieces and grind them coarsely.

5. Add powdered sugar, coconut powder,coarsely ground nuts, ghee and cardamom powder and mix them all together nicely.

6.Take a tablespoon full of the mixture at a time and shape them into a laddoos.
