CHURMUNDO (WHEAT FLOUR LADDU’S)...


My mom was very happy with my final semester BE results (86.4%), so she told me prepare the wheat flour Laddu’s (which we call it as Churmundo) and distribute it among all my relatives so that she can share her happiness along with them. Everyone in our family loves the Churmundo prepared by my mom and thank god now i have learnt how to prepare it finally. I found it very easy and it really tastes yummmmmmmmmmm…..It’s prepared only during special occasions. My relatives wait for my mom to prepare it, that’s their favorite sweet dish. This time she decided that I should prepare it and distribute it among them. It tasted really well to my surprise and also got emptied in a day span. 
It requires very less ingredients. Let me first list out the required Ingredients:
INGREDIENTS:
½ kg Wheat Flour
250 ml Fresh and pure Ghee
1 ½ cup of Sugar
1 tsp of Cardamom powder
10 -12 Badam
PROCEDURE TO PREPARE:
1) Take a Kadai and put it on the stove for heating.
2) Add the Wheat flour to the Kadai and start to heat the wheat flour with constant stirring for around 10 minutes on a low flame.
3) Now add ghee to the heated Wheat flour and keep mixing it well with wheat flour.
4) You need to constantly keep mixing and heat the wheat flour till it turns the wheat flour color to light brown color for about 45 mins.
5) Simultaneously add the sugar and cardamom to the mixer and grind it to fine powder.
6) Its better to keep the heated wheat flour to cool down for at least half an hour or else it will be hot to make it into small balls (Laddu’s).
7) After the Wheat flour cools down, chop Badam into small pieces and add it to the heated wheat flour along with prepared Sugar and cardamom powder.
8) Mix the mixture very well; see to it that it forms uniform mixture without any small aggregates of sugar powder.
9) Now start to make Laddu’s (smaller sized balls) and keep the prepared Laddu’s on tissue paper; It will help to remove extra ghee in the prepared Laddu’s (if any).
10) The tasty Laddu’s is ready in almost an hour or 1 ½ hours. It’s really worth to spend such long time to get those Yummmmmmmmmy Laddu’s. I finally garnished it with Badam pieces.
Whenever we prepare Churmundo at our home there is usually a competition among mom and me as to who will make more Laddu’s. This time also I won against mom, but she feels happy to lose she says it will help me to improve. 

There are still many more recipes to be learnt from her.
Until I Learn the more recipes keep enjoying, eat good food and stay fit.
Thank you friends
