Although traditionally a Bengali sweet, cham cham is quite popular in Pakistan as well. They mostly come in oblong shapes, white in color, and soaked in a thick sugary syrup. In Hyderabad, India, I notice they decorate their cham chams with halved cherries on top.
And though I am not a huge fan of sweets in general, these green cham chams caught my attention right away—the color is so beautiful and it is shaped like a paan! And I really like how they use a clove to keep the corners in place.
Cham chams basically contain milk, sugar, lemon juice, food coloring, and rose water. I find the filling too sweet, but the outer green covering is nicely crisp and crunchy.
Have you tried this type of sweet before?
