Hold a fistful of the flour. If the fistful holds, there is enough ghee, if not add a little more. Traditionally referred to as ‘mutthi bhar moyen’.

Choorma is traditionally made with Boora rather than powdered sugar. Boora gives it an authentic taste and texture. While easily available in Rajasthan, boora is difficult to come by in other parts of India. I make my own. Here is the link to making Boora/Tagaar at home along with a video link.

Mix slivered nuts. Make them into balls /laddoos while warm if desired. Or serve as it is.
