I love this dish a lot, in fact I love almost all the Bengali sweet dishes like Rasgulla, Rasmalai, Malai Sandwich, Sandesh, etc.
How To Make Chum Chum?
Milk - 1 Ltr
Lemon Juice - 1 Tbsp
Sugar - 1 Cup
Water - 3 Cup
Now strain the curdled milk in a muslin cloth. Now pour in some cold water and rinse it well. Cover the cloth and squeeze it well to remove any excess water. Paneer or cottage cheese is ready.
Now transfer it in a plate and knead it well for 5 min to make a soft dough.
Now make a oval shaped ball or any shape that you want from the dough.
Heat a wide sauce pan, add water and sugar to it. Bring it to boil.
Now drop cottage cheese balls to the boiling sugar syrup. Cover it with a lid and cook it for 20 min.
After 20 min you will notice that the cottage cheese ball has doubled in size. Now switch off the stove and let it cool down.
Transfer the chum chum to a plate.
Your Chum Chum is ready to serve.
Garnish it with dessicated coconut, condensed milk, fresh sweetened cream / malai or nuts.
