WATCH HOW TO MAKE BADAM ROTI CHURMA:
We always celebrate the beginning of Navaratri with this Badam Roti Churma! With a lovely nutty taste and texture from the almond flour and a floral aroma from the saffron and rose, it’s perfect to offer to the Goddess during the morning pooja.
- 1/2 cup wheat flour
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1 tbsp ghee , more for shallow-frying
- 1/2 cup warm milk , more as needed
- pinch saffron
- 2/3 cup jaggery , powdered or grated (as desired)
- 1/2 tsp cardamom powder
- 1 tsp dried rose petals
- 2 tsp desiccated coconut
- 1 tbsp almonds , slivered
- 1 tbsp pistachio , slivered
Soak the saffron in the warm milk for 5-10 minutes.
Mix together the almond flour, wheat flour, ghee, and saffron milk until it forms a firm dough. Add more milk as needed. Cover the dough and rest for 15 minutes.
Divide the dough into 4 equal parts and roll out the dough ball into a circle. Apply 1/4 tsp ghee on the flattened dough and roll it into a log shape. Then roll the log shaped dough like a Swiss roll. Dust it with some wheat flour and roll it into 1/4 inch circles. Repeat this for each portion of the dough.
Heat a pan and place the rolled out paratha on it. Cook on medium heat till the base is partly cooked, then flip it over. Drizzle ½ tsp of ghee over the paratha and along the edges. Cook it by pressing with the help of a spatula. Now, flip it again, drizzle 1/2 tsp ghee and cook by pressing slightly. Cook till the paratha is golden brown on both sides. Repeat this for all of your parathas.
When the parathas are hot, tear them into small pieces and transfer into a mixing bowl. Add in the jaggery, cardamom powder, and 1 tsp of ghee. Mix together with your hands until well combined, pressing and applying pressure gently.
Add in your rose petals, coconut, pistachios, and almonds. Your Badam Roti Churma is ready!
