Churma is a word that has become synonymous with Rajasthani cuisine. Jaripalla Churma is a richer version of the regular churma, claimed to be influenced heavily by Marwari style of cooking with lavish ingredients like dry fruits, saffron and khoya. A combination of flours deep-fried in ghee gives this churma a very intense mouth-feel and flavour that linger in the mouth after every spoonful. This soul pampering sweet is reserved for special occasions like weddings and festivals like Krishna Janmashtami.
