Churi, also known as Malida, is a traditional sweet snack commonly found in the Indian subcontinent, particularly in Pakistan and India. It is usually made with coarsely ground wheat flour, clarified butter (ghee), sugar, and nuts.
To make churi, the wheat flour is roasted in ghee until it turns golden brown and emits a nutty aroma. Sugar and nuts such as almonds, pistachios, and cashews are then added to the mixture and combined well.
The mixture is then shaped into small balls or flattened discs and left to cool. Churi is typically served with milk or yogurt and is enjoyed as a snack or as a breakfast item. Some variations of churi may also include spices such as cardamom or saffron to add additional flavor.
Churi is a popular and beloved snack in the Indian subcontinent and is often associated with festivals and celebrations. It is also a common food item offered to guests as a symbol of hospitality.
