Churma (Indian Sweet Dish)

Wheat/Bajra Chapatis(Indian flatbread) mashed with Desi Ghee & Jaggery(gur)


I have such fond memories of having churma/choorma with my siblings, when I was growing up. We would often fight for little extra(haha). Now every time I make churma for my kids, it bring back memories from my childhood when my mother would make churma ladoos ( churma balls) for me, so I have an emotional bond with churma! It is simple and super easy to make, requires little effort & ingredients & is finger licking good! It is made with leftover whole wheat or bajra (millet) chapatis. It is safe to consume leftover chapati (basi roti) within 12-15 hrs).

Cooking Time: 10 min 
Serves : 2 - 3
Cuisine: Indian
Course: Dessert
Difficulty Level : Easy

Ingredients              : Qty          

 1.  leftover chapatis  :  4    

 2.  Desi ghee (Clarified butter)  :  4-5 tsp

 3.  Jaggery (Gur) :  100 gm (grated or small pieces

You can add dry fruits(few, coarsely grinded) and powdered green cardamom(a pinch) as well but I like it simple!


1.   Make small pieces and coarsely grind the chapatis in a grinder.

2.   Take a pan and on low flame add Desi ghee, let it melt.

3. Add coarsely ground chapatis, grated Jaggery (gur) and mix well. Jaggery & ghee should nicely bind with the chapatis.

4.  Turn off the flame and let it sit for 10 minutes before serving.

Voila it’s done!


I had this amazingly delicious churma made from Bajra (Millet) chapatis at Welcome hotel Khimsar Fort and Dunes, Rajasthan and it’s a must try if you happen to visit there!😊
