Cham Cham (Bengali Sweet )


Cham Cham or Chum Chum is a traditional sweet from West Bengal and is very popular in Bangladesh , India and Pakistan . It is usually made with Chenna (a scrambled Milk or Paneer preparation ) and available in variety of colors. The stuffing is made up of dried milk (Khoya ) or Dry fruits and nuts . I have tried it for the first time and everyone liked it. This goes for white color for cooking with colors theme. So let's start the recipe .yum


Ingredients:

1 liter full cream milk
