1) Paneer 1/2 kg
2) Sugar 1 cup
3) Water 3 cups
4) Cloves 4
5) Cardamom powder 1/2 tsp
6) Powered sugar 2 tsp
Blend paneer in a blender until it becomes soft.Use the pulse mode so that it doesn't get too soft.You should be able to make a firm but smooth ball.If the paneer is too crumbly, add a teaspoon of water.
If you are planning to make chum chum with filling remove about 1/4 th cup of paneer. Then make small oval shaped balls of equal size using the remaining paneer.
Take sugar, water and clove in a big pan and boil for 10 mts. After 10 mts add the paneer balls, cover and cook for 10 mts. After 10 mts turn the paneer balls, cover and cook for another 10 mts.
Now switch of the fire and let the chum chum's rest in syrup for 10 mts. Take the paneer that you have saved to make the filling and add 2 tsp powdered sugar and cardamom and mix well and microwave for 30 seconds,mix it again and microwave for another 30 seconds.
Take out the chum chum's from syrup and slit them in half and fill them with the prepared filling and if you like you can roll them in nuts or coconut flakes.
