Churma is an authentic sweet of Rajasthan usually served along with Dal and Baati. The churma is also shaped into ladoos by adding ghee. After I made Dal Baati Churma, I shaped the churma into ladoos. They tasted very rich and delicious. Today I just tried to incorporate some dark shades in my picture after reading about it in a blog. I am OK with the results but I think I need to improve my skills on food photography.
