Chum Chum
Chum Chum is a popular Bengali sweet dish. It is prepared with cottage cheese. It is made in various colors. It can be served plain or by garnishing with dessicated coconut, fresh sweetened cream or condensed milk.

I love this dish a lot, in fact I love almost all the Bengali sweet dishes like Rasgulla, Rasmalai, Malai Sandwich, Sandesh, etc.
