Chum Chum ( Bengali Sweet )

This is the first time that I am posting a recipe for Sweet Fantasy Club ( SFC )  a sweet group started by a sweet blogger friend Preeti Garg of Simplytadka.Com . In this we members post 2 sweet recipes given by her every month. One is an Indian Sweet and another an International Dessert .

 So for this month we had to make a very popular delcious bengali sweet Chum Chum , and the next dessert in the series is Banoffee Pie about which I will be posting tomorrow. Chum Chum can be prepared easily if you use readymade rasgullas  for this . But if you have enough time in hand than do think of making the rasgullas at home as well .

 So when this challenge was declared I first made the rasgullas which were equally tasty   ( See the recipe here ) . So off to the sweet delcious Chum Chum....

Thanks Preeti - its just because of you that I ventured to learn making bengali sweets .








Ingredients :

6 to 8 ..................readymade rasgullas ( I used homemade ones )
1/2 litre..................full cream milk
2 tbsp...................milk powder ( can use mawa instead)
1 tbsp..................sugar
1 tbsp.................fresh cream
2 to 3 ...............almonds ( peeled and slivered)
2 to 3 ...............pistachios ( peeled and slivered)
1/4 tsp.............cardmom seeds crushed
few .................pomegranate seeds ( optional)





Method :


Boil the milk and reduce it to less than half .

Add sugar and let it dissolve.

Now add milk powder and boil till the milk is thick.

Take the rasgullas and squeeze them to remove the sugar syrup inside.

Drop them in the above milk and let them absorb the milk.

Chill them in the fridge till serving time.

At the time of serving arrange them on a plate.

Put fresh cream on top and spread it.

Also sprinkle slivered nuts and cardamom and serve.

Garnish with pomegranate seeds and serve chilled.
