To make the Dough

  • In a large mixing bowl combine 2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon carom seeds, 1 teaspoon salt and 6 tablespoons ghee (50 grams).
  • Press a part of the mixture to ensure it retains its shape. Use your fingers to combine the ingredients until they resemble breadcrumbs.
  • Next, add 7 to 8 teaspoons of water in parts and knead, adding only a little at a time.
  • If you think the dough is too dry or floury, add an additional 1 to 2 tablespoons of water.
  • To create a tight, solid dough, keep kneading. It should not be soft or sticky. For 30 minutes, cover the dough with a damp kitchen towel and allow it to rest.
  • Add a few teaspoons of flour if your dough starts to get too sticky or wet. Mix and knead once more to get a solid dough.
  • Once the dough has rested, separate it into 6-7 uniform portions. To smooth and soften each piece, first softly roll it in your palms. You can either set it on the rolling board or your work surface.

To make the Churma Mixture

  • To make the churma, combine whole wheat flour, semolina and melted ghee in a deep bowl and mix well. Add approx. ¼ cup water and kneed well to make a stiff dough.
  • Divide the dough in 8 portions.
  • Flatten each dough and deep fry in ghee until golden brown.
  • Allow them to cool down and then blend it into powder.
  • Add crushed almond, Cardamom powder and powdered sugar.
  • Then stuff this churma mixture in each dough and shape it like a pocket.
  • Then deep fry it until golden brown and serve it.
