Cham-Cham is a very delicious sweet made of cheese. Learn how to make/prepare Cham Cham by following this easy recipe.

Ingredients for recipe:

    • 450 gms Paneer
    • 4 cups Water
    • 2 cups Sugar
    • 2-3 tbsp Rose Water
    • A few strands of Saffron
    • 200gms Fresh Thickened/ Double Cream

Method for Cham Cham Sweets:

    • Put the paneer in a bowl and knead it. Knead till all the lumps are removed and the paneer/cheese is absolutely smooth.
    • Prepare sugar syrup by adding sugar and water in a pressure cooker and bring the mixture to a boil (without covering the pressure cooker).
    • While the sugar syrup boils, divide the paneer dough into small oblong shaped balls and roll between your palms till smooth.
    • Gently dip the balls to the sugar syrup and cover the pressure cooker. After the first whistle, wait for 8-10 minutes and then turn off the flame.
    • Release the steam from the pressure cooker and allow the Cham-Chams to cool completely before touching them.
    • When cool, pour the rose water and saffron strands on the Cham-Chams and chill for a few hours.
    • When chilled, remove the Cham-Chams from the syrup and arrange in a platter.
    • Whisk the fresh cream till thick and fluffy. Fill into an icing bag and pipe a swirl out (with a thick nozzle) onto each Cham-Cham.
    • Garnish with slivers of your favorite dried fruit and serve.
