Iam really happy today. Just wanted to share the happiness with everyone as well. This is my 500th post. After so many trial and errors I have reached this point. I would never say Iam well versed, Iam still in the learning phase. Just now started to shape my photographic and presentation skills slowly. And Iam sure I really need to work a lot to improve my pics and contents to a highly presentable point..
This is one of most favourite recipe. When ever I go a sweet stall I never step out without having a bite of this sweet.
I prepared this recipe with a store bought paneer. You can also try with a home made paneer as well.
For the base:
paneer - 250 gms
yellow colour - 1 pinch
For the filling:
sweetless khova - 50 gms
powdered sugar - 3 - 4 tsp
cardamom powder - 1 pinch
finely chopped cashews - 1 tsp
For the Syrup:
Sugar - 1 cup
water - 2 cups
rose essence - 1 tsp
- blend the paneer in a blender until they are soft and creamy.
(you can also make it as a dough using your hand)
- add the colour and mix well
- when the colour is all even in the paneer make a ball and roll into long rasagullas.
- make sure all the rasagullas are rolled in the same and even shape and size.
- leave them on a plate.
- meanwhile add sugar and water to a pressure pan and bring that to a boil
- when the sugar is compleletly dissolved add the essence and mix well
- drop the rasagullas into the syrup slowly and close the cooker with the lid
- put the whistle and cook that upto one whistle
- meawhile blend the khova in a blender till they are smooth
- add the sugar, cardamom powder and nuts
- mix well
- remove the rasagullas from the syrup and allow them to cool
- cut them in between like a sandwich and fill the kova mixture to the base rasagulla and cover them with the other half.
- place them on a plate and pour some sugar syrup on the top
- garnish them with cherries on the top ( I didnt have one though :( )
- serve cold.
I was able to make 7 of these Chum chums and that tasted awesome.
