Churma Ladoo is a delicious sweet served in the auspicious occasions. I make it for festival of Ganesh Chaturthi. The Churma Ladoo also makes an excellent energetic snack for adults and children. Only thing is this making process takes time and patience to make ladoo, but the end result is mouthwatering and makes all the effort worth it.
