Chalmidi is a simple delicious dough made of rice flour being the main ingredient. Making a good chalmidi isn’t very tough but taking it for granted yields no good stuff. Chalmidi can be served as one of naivedyam/prasadam to the Ganpati Bappa.
I believe my mum makes the best of the chalmidi since I haven’t tasted a better one ever. And so here I put the recipe to the so very tasty Chalmidi. You sure cant stop eating. I love it a bit in the liquidy consistency that leaves me licking on the fingers 😛 You sure can alter the dough consistency according to your taste.
- Rice flour: one cup
- Sugar powder: 1/2 cup
- Hot milk/water to make the dough
- Chopper coconut: 1/2 cup
- Cashew nuts: few
- Cardamom: 2-3
- Ghee: 2 and 1/2 table spoons
Method to make chalmidi
Make a soft dough of the rice flour using hot milk /water. Add in the powdered sugar now.
Take a pan and heat some ghee. Once the ghee melts add in the chopped coconut and cook till brown.
To the same pan add some more ghee and fry the cashew nuts and cardamom and keep them aside.
Once the dough is ready add in lots of ghee and give a quick mix.
Then add in the roasted coconut, cashew and cardamom to the rice flour dough.
Give a good mix and serve it to the Ganesh Maharaj.
