Chum chum is cylindrical version of rasagulla stuffed with mawa/kova and coated with desiccated coconut. There are many variations of chum chum like just coating with coconut, stuffing with dried fruits and all. Choice is ours and we can do any innovative stuffing with that. I used my homemade palkova for stuffing. You can add sugar to mawa/khoya which is readily available and use for stuffing too. Key to make soft chum chum is kneading the Chenna. You should knead till smooth and shiny. Always use full fat whole milk for making chum chum.

Notes

You can use any nuts of your choice for topping.

You can use lime juice for curdling the milk. I always prefer curd over lime juice as it tends to make it harden if cooked for long time.

You can use mawa/ khoya with sugar for stuffing

You can use dried fruits along with mawa as stuffing too

Chenna should have little moisture while kneading. It should not be completely dry.
