Folks, some good news to share on this occasion .. Recently won the 2nd prize in Mega Click Contest conducted by Gayathri. I am very thankful to Gayatri for giving me such a wonderful opportunity to participate and choosing my click to 2nd place. And thanks to my husband who got me this wonderful camera of course ...hehe and my lucky charm Ananya (2 years old) my sweet cutie pie she was soo behind that flower, that day it took almost an hour to take one pic as she was grabbing that capsicum flower .. :-)
So i celebrate Ugadi with my award and also by sharing Bengali sweet cham cham recipe.
This sweet is made of home made paneer ,sugar and rose water .Was thinking of Priya's pink color food when i saw a cham cham pack at a indian groicery shop. Soon the thought became the reality! so here is the fresh Cham Cham with refreshing pink ... enjoi,... folks ..Happy ugadi once again . !!
1/2 gallon milk
1tbs lemon juice
1 cup sugar
3 glass of water
1/2 tsp corn starch (Optional)
1/2 tsp rose water
pinch of pink food color
Dry coconut powder
1)Boil the milk in medium high ,when it starts boiling add lemon juice and mix it well ,now milk will start to curdle.Switch of the gas and let it get set for 10 minutes .
2) Strain in to a cloth and make like a big knot and hang it in for 1/2 hour .
3)When all the water is drained ..take the mixture in the pan (step1) in to the bowl and mix it well ..to make a smooth paste .
4) Then add little food color and mix it well .(I have used pink color ).
5) Divide the dough in to small equal parts and make oval shaped balls and set aside (Pls make make sure the balls are smaller in size as it would become double in size once you add sugar and water)
6) Take a large pan , put sugar and water, mix it well .When it starts boiling add rose water and put all the oval shaped cham cham(pannir rolls) cover the pan and let that cook for 10 -15 minutes .Switch off the gas and and let it cool down for another 10 minutes and then take out the cham cham and refrigerate that for at least 1/2 hour .
7)Put dry coconut powder in the plate and roll over the cham cham or garnish with any dry fruits ..of your choice .Enjoi
