Churma Ladoo (For Dal Baati Churma)

Churma Ladoo:- 

Preparation time:-10 minutes
Baking time:-35 t0 40 minutes
Ready In:-50 minutes
Serves:- 6 to 8 Medium Size Ladoo

Dal,bati and churma ladoo is the ultimate Rajasthani cuisine combination.Churma laddo ingredients and the bati ingredients are same ,traditionally batis without salt are fried in pure ghee but here i am showing the baking version.Churma ladoo is also prepared in festive season as a offering to God.Usually jaggery is used but i have used powdered sugar.Very healthy for kids,instead of a iron supplement,churma ladoo made with jaggery is a good option for kids.If you want to make it for kids then fry the bati in ghee.I have baked the batis and used powdered sugar as i made it for eating with Dal and bati. When eating with dal bati i prefer sugar ladoos.For prasadam i prefer using jaggery and crushed dry fruits.AS the Ganpati Bappa is here with us this is the best prasadam option.So here is the recipe for churma ladoo.
1)Chapati Flour or wheat flour 4 cups
2)Semolina 1 cup
3)Pure ghee/ butter 2 table spoons
4)Baking powder 1/8 tea spoon
5)Warm water or milk 1/4 cup
6)Powdered white sugar or Jaggery powder to taste(I used 1/2 cup)
7)Cardamom crushed 3 to 4 numbers
8)Pure ghee to deep the Churma bati 1/2 cup
(If frying the batis and not baking then u need pure ghee for frying)
1)Preheat oven to 180°Celsius or 350° Fahrenheit.
2)Sieve together the flour,semolina and baking powder.
3)Add the pure ghee mix well so that the ghee gets incorporated in the flour thoroughly.
4)Add i the warm water or milk little bit at a time and knead for 3 to 4 minutes to form a stiff dough.Apply few drops of ghee and set aside for 10 to 15 minutes.
5)Make medium sized rounds and place on to the baking tray(Refer the pictures)
6)Brush some ghee on top and transfer to the oven and bake for 15 minutes,after 15 minutes turn over and bake for another 10 minutes or until it turns golden brown.
7)When its done take out of the oven and deep into the melted pure ghee make sure
the bati is covered with ghee from all side.Keep it for 2 to 3 minutes so the ghee get absorbed into it.
8)Instead of baking you can deep fry the batis in ghee
9)After that Scrumble the batis  with the help of hands or coarsely grind in a mixer grinder or food processor,add the powdered sugar or jaggery, add the crushed cardamoms ,add some melted ghee and mix well and roll out the round ladoos as per your required size.
10)Serve with Dal Bati.

(If you are making the ladoos for Prasadam,then after the ladoos are done roll them in the roasted poppy seeds.Even if you want you can add some dry fruits into it like cashews,sultanas,pistachios and almond flakes.And serve as a Sweet dish too.)
