Equipment

  • Iron Tawa
  • Steel parath

Ingredients
  

  • 7 cups wheat flour
  • 4 pack Jaggery 220 gm each (I have used Dhampur)
  • 1.5 cups desi ghee
  • 2 cup water for kneading dough
  • 1 tbsp salt add in dough

Instructions
 

  • The first step is to knead a wheat dough. Take a parath (an large wide steel utensil). Add wheat flour and salt to it.
    Gradually add water to have a smooth dough. It would look like bread crumbs and slowly it would gather together as a one big lump. Add desi ghee to it. Cover it for 10 min.
  • In the meantime, take jaggery and a clean kitchen cloth. Place the jaggery inside the cloth and soften it with roller (belan). It takes 10-12 strokes and totally depends on the quality of jaggery.
    I have used Dhampur Gud and it was easy to soften up. Taken 4 packs of this Gud. Place the softened Gud in the steel parath.
  • Now start making wheat paratha using dough kneaded in first step.
    I recommend using desi ghee to make parathas.
  • Transfer this hot paratha directly to Steel parath containing softened gud. And one person would crush hot paratha and mix it in Gud.
    The other person would keep making parathas. This keeps going on step by step with every paratha.
    Keep making paratha and keep crushing it in the jaggery while its hot. I made around 20 parathas with 4 pack of gud (220 gm each) and it was sufficiently sweet. One may adjust as per sweetness required.
    Note: Since mixing is done while parathas are hot, pls be careful.
  • It takes around 1 hour to mix all parathas in the jaggery. Initially jaggery would start melting and gradually, the mixture would be such that you can make a small ball of it. Pour 2 tsp melted ghee over ready churma.
    You may taste to check if its too sweet and add more parathas accordingly.
    The Jaggery Churma is ready and you may enjoy it!
