Chum Chum is a very delicious, traditional, oval shaped Bengali sweet made with paneer. It just melts in mouth.

Chum Chum


Paneer made with 4 cups of milk
2 cups sugar
5 cups water
pinch of yellow food colour

For garnishing:

1 tbsp sliced pistachios


1: Add food colour in few drops of water.

2: Put the paneer in a bowl, add the coloured water and knead till the paneer is absolutely smooth.

3: Divide the paneer dough into 8 equal parts and roll each one into a smooth oval shaped ball.

4: Prepare sugar syrup by adding sugar and water in a large pan as the chum chum will double in volume while cooking in the syrup.

5:When the sugar syrup boils, add the paneer balls to the syrup and bring it to a boil. Then turn down the heat to medium and cover the pot. Cook for 10 minutes.

6: Open the pot cover, turn the chum chums over and cook for another 15 minutes.

7: Turn off the heat and let it sit for 10 more minutes.
