We often have sweet cravings, especially after getting a glimpse of them. The dessert chamcham is one among the many mouthwatering delicacies. One bite of it is never enough, the tongue just wants more of the luscious sweetmeat.
It is to be noted that jaggery can be used as a substitute for sugar in making Chamcham. It not only improves its flavour but also is helps in keeping the weight under control.
