Being vegetarian I am big fan of gujarati and rajasthani food. Every month we use to go to Rajdhani restaurant to catch dish of Dal bati and churma. Having sweet tongue I use to finish of churma first J.

When it comes to cooking something from leftovers I become real innovative. As you should cook in such a way that others will not only like it but should not understand it’s made out of leftovers. So I tried this recipe, after the first spoon in my mouth, I patted my own back and hubby dear didn’t even came to know it’s made out of leftover chapattis and it was as delicious as the rajdhani dishJ

Preparation Time: 5 mins

Cooking Time: 5 mins

Serves/ Makes: 2

Utensil Needed:

Mixer Grinder

Frying Pan


4 Left over Chapattis

4 tsp Ghee

½ tsp Cardamom Powder

1 tsp broken Cashew Nuts

1 tsp Raisins

1 tsp broken Walnuts

1 tsp broken Almonds

8 tsp Sugar (adjust your Sweetness)


Tire the chapattis into pieces. Grind it into fine powder in mixer grinder. Now in a frying pan, melt ghee. Roast in ghee all the dry fruits till golden. Now add the powder chapattis. Roast it and keep stirring it continuously to avoid burning for about 3 minutes on low flame. Now add cardamom powder and sugar and mix well for another 1 min. Switch off the gas and keep it on hot pan for 10 minutes. Churma is ready to serve.

Tip: Continuously mixing on low flame is key point as we want granulated texture.
