Chomchom, cham cham, or chum chum (Bengali: চমচম) is a traditional Bengali sweet, popular in Bangladesh, India, and Pakistan. The cuisine comes in a variety of colors, mainly light pink, light yellow, and white. It is coated with coconut or mawa flakes as a garnish.


The history of Porabari chamcham, an oval-shaped brownish variety of chomchom from Porabari in Tangail District of Bangladesh, dates back to mid-19th century. The modern version of this dish was made by Matilal Gore, based on a sweet dish prepared by his grandfather Raja Ramgore, who was a native of Ballia district in Uttar Pradesh, India.[1]
