Are you aware of the Indian dessert Churma I have shared earlier?

A little intro about Daal Baati Choorma:

Rajasthani Dal Baati Churma is a traditional Rajasthani food which is made on special occasions, festivals, and parties or get-togethers. In fact, this is is the most popular dish of Rajasthani cuisine. This meal is an esteemed part of every Rajasthani household. This 3 in1 delicacy is a typical Rajasthani treat. A platter of sweet and fragrant Churma, spicy Dal, and Baati, is one of the greatest traditional combinations.

Churma is a special delicacy of Rajasthani cuisine which is usually served with dal bati thali. There are so many varieties of the churma depending upon the ingredients used. There are many different versions of churmas I grew up eating in Rajasthan. They are known as atte ka churma (Whole Wheat Churma), besan ka Churma (Chickpea Flour Churma), Bajre Ka Churma (Pearl Millet Churma). The exotic churma recipe I am sharing today is Gulab ka churma, aka Rose Churma.

In parties, the ‘Dal Baati Churma’ platter is full of different types of baatis, dals, curries and churmas. And everyone gets just so fascinated about all this royal food platter. It’s been almost 16-17 years when I first had this pink churma in a party along with other churmas. I ate all varieties of churma before that party, but I didn’t know that there was also a pink churma aka Rose Churma.

First, I was so charmed by its pink color which was quite unusual in a churma. The bright appearance of this delight intrigued me. I was excited even more when I got to know that this was made with rose. Mmmmm, I can still smell that magnetic aroma I felt at that time. A spoonful of that aromatic rose churma was kinda love at first bite.

The taste of this churma was just beyond any words. So distinctive and peculiar in taste. It was really sensational. After that party, I found it at many other parties too. But my Mom never made it at home, so I thought she doesn’t know that recipe. And then I moved to Europe, and simply forgot about this rose churma. Here, whenever I made churma, it’s either whole-wheat churma or chickpea churma.

All of a sudden, last week little ‘A’ came to me and asked if I can make ‘Daal Baati Churma’ for her which she had at her Grandma’s place in India during our last visit. I was astounded that she memorized the name of three dishes so correctly, especially when I don’t make these delicacies regularly here.

I said, “Yes, certainly. I can make.”
A: “Oh, wow! Thank you, Mommy. Would you also make Churma?”
Me: Yes, if you say so.
A: “Oh, wow! I like eating churma because it’s sweet and so delicious.”

Next day when I was about to make this 3-in-1 delicacy, she came to me and started playing with the words to tease me. Playing with words and finding something funny in those words is her favorite game.

While playing she said: “Mommy, are you making churma?”
Me: “Yes.”
A: “Oh, that means you are making ‘Pink Churma’”.
Me a bit surprised: “Where did you eat pink churma?”
A: “Hahaha, I am just playing mommy.”

And those two words — ‘pink churma’ — took me 17 years back when I first had this pink churma. And abruptly, I had an urge to eat to that pink churma. I asked to hubby dear, if he ever had that pink churma, and he gave me those “What are you talking about” looks. That was sign enough to make me understand that he knew nothing about this.

Then my next step was to call my Mom and asked about this churma recipe. I didn’t know whether she knew the recipe or not, but took a chance. Surprisingly she told me that she has been making this churma for years now.

Me: “How come I don’t know about this? This is so strange? Isn’t it? Why didn’t you tell me earlier that you make this rose churma.”
Mom: “It never occurred to me. And anyway you are not a big fan of churma. Isn’t it?”
Me: “Yes, I wasn’t earlier. But I always LOVED this pink churma. I never asked to you because I thought you didn’t know how it is made. But now tell me the recipe so that I can try making it today.”

And that’s how I found the recipe of this 3-P Churma. 3-P = Perfect, Pretty, Pink.

I have made this churma with dried rose petals, but my Mom said that fresh rose petals can also be used for making this churma. I have added edible pink food color but it can be omitted. Since I was craving for pink colored churma, I didn’t want to skip it. The churma would still be aromatic if you don’t add food color. The color won’t make any difference in flavors, it’s just that it looks so appealing and eye catching. Great for presentation for your guests — just the way it should be.
