Malai chamcham, the long way by accident

Malai chamcham


Shubho bijoya everyone. Here the temperatures dropped right before the pujo, so it has been a lot colder this year.

But that doesn't dampen the festival spirits, right? Even though the work week is busy and regular stuff and pujo is over the weekend, it's fun to make something special during the week.

Growing up, Durga pujo was more about meeting friends, fun, and eating out more than the religion part, and I am hoping that kids get some of those moments too. Even if it means carrying the Pokemon tins, chess boards and coordinating with friends.

It turned out to be fun, they sat around and played chess and games while we caught up on our end.

During the week, I made malai chamcham. I didn't intend to make it the long way, but it turned out to be so. I forgot to follow the advice I give out here and put sugar in the heavy cream in the beginning. So I started over again for malai, this time with whole milk. The result of it all - delicious malai chamchams, that reminded us of sweet goodness during the busy work week.

Here is how I made it:
