Traditional churma, sweetened with jaggery and enhanced with coconut and sesame seeds, is shaped into Rajasthani churma ladoos that are easy to store and serve.

In order to get the best texture and flavour of Rajasthani churma ladoo, use coarsely ground wheat flour, and when frying the balls of dough make sure you remove them from the oil when they are fully cooked from inside and golden brown in colour. Do not let them redden, or the flavour will change.

Notes on churma ladoo. 1. If you’re making churma ladoo during winter you can add ghee roasted gaund powder. 2. If you do not have jada gehun ka atta then make use of the fine variety with an addition of 1-2 tbsp of rava to get the coarse texture in churma laddoo. 3. Combine all the ingredients and knead into a stiff dough. We don’t have to knead the dough like we do for breads. 4. The dough portion should be firm such that if you drop them for frying, it should not break or crumble in oil. 5. To get a beautiful flavour of atta churma ladoo, we are making use of ghee for frying, but you can use oil too.

Churma Ladoo recipe with step by step photos

What are Ladoos?

  1. What are Ladoos?    Ladoos are basically ball-shaped Indian sweets made by shaping a dough-like mixture into small balls with the palm of your hand. Ladoos can range from simple to elaborate to really complex! The basic ladoo involves crushing or powdering ingredients like roasted peanuts, coconut, dry fruits, etc., mixing them with sweeteners and spices, and shaping the mixture into ladoos using greased palms. The Quick Peanut Ladoo and Nuts Khoya Ladoo are made within minutes without much effort.
  2. Ladoos like the Til Ladoo, which is an indispensable part of Sankaranthi celebrations, require you make a syrup of jaggery or sugar, which binds together all the other ingredients. Such ladoos require a little practice because you need to deftly roll them while still warm. But it is definitely worth the effort, because these traditional delights have a timeless appeal. Another evergreen delight is the Besan Ladoo. Made with few and simple ingredients, there is one secret to making the best Besan Ladoo in town. You need to be patient while roasting the besan, till you get a rich and appetizing aroma!
  3. Some ladoos, however, require a little more effort than others. But, the effort shows in the outcome. One of the most famous of Indian mithaisa must-have in the Diwali mithai, is the Motichoor ki Ladoo! This requires you to make boondi, which is then drenched in spicy sugar syrup and then deftly rolled into ladoos. The taste and texture of this ladoo is simply out of the world!
  4. You can be innovative and bring together your choice of ingredients to make interesting ladoos. Go for healthy ladoos like the Oats and Mixed Nuts Ladoo. Or, please your kids with totally offbeat options like the Rocky Road Popcorn Balls or Chocolaty Balls – of course, these are ladoos too, whatever name you call them by!

Other Laddu recipes

I have tried this recipe but it doesn''t turn out crunchy. ladoos look like wet & soft. what should be the jaggery consistancy.

Tarla Dalal    Hi, These ladoos have to be deep-fried on a medium flame as mentioned and as long as 20 minutes so make sure the flame and the timings are followed...

Last I had had this laddoo in my childhood at a marriage function. For these many years I have never had Churma laddoos. This is the first time, I gave it a try, and here I made it on the auspicious day of Ganesh Chaturthi. I loved this recipe, so did my family. Thanks a lot.
