Churma ladoo |Gujarati Churma na Ladva

For the last day of presenting Sweet /deserts recipe I have made the Gujarati Churma Ladoo.Few days back my Gujarati neighbor,friend gave me some ladoos that I fell in love with the cute shape.Then what ,I pinged her for the recipe and of course the mold.She told me her traditional family recipe and how they always make it every year on Ganesha Chaturthi.

The basic step is the simple churma recipe after that you just need ghee for binding and ladoos are ready in seconds. she told me some people prefer to add more wheat flour, but she loved to add more fine semolina .I followed her recipe to the point without any change.This recipe will make 12 to 15 ladoos and we finished all of them in 2 days.I forgot to click the steps and the mold picture.I will try to update the post soon.
