Chom Chom/ a sweet delicacy made from fresh cottage cheese|| A classic Bengali sweet

Chom Chom/Chum Chum is a classic sweet dessert of Bengal. This recipe is similar to that of Rosogolla.

It is a very simple to prepare but it takes time,all you need is patience and just keep checking on intervals….

It is simply made of Chhana/chhena or cottage cheese,semolina and bit of baking powder. It cooks in sugar syrup until you get the deserved color. It takes almost 3 hours to cook and the main trick is adding hot water in intervals.

That’s it😊

So,make some sweet dish for our friends and family πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹
