How to make Chum Chum

  2. Keep the paneer on plate and knead it for 5-7 minutes until to smooth and firm dough. If the paneer looks dried, then add half teaspoon of milk.
  3. Divide the paneer dough into equal eight portions and roll each portion into flat oval shaped balls and keep aside.
  4. For sugar syrup, you have to add 2 cup sugar and 5 cup of water in pressure cooker. Cook on a high flame till the sugar dissolves completely.
  5. Add paneer balls and cover with lid. Cook the paneer balls in pressure cooker for one whistle and reduce the flame.
