Kalo jam is a popular sweet in South Asian countries such as Bangladesh, India, and Pakistan. It is made from chhana (cottage cheese) that is shaped into small balls and then deep-fried until golden brown. The fried chhana balls are then soaked in a sugar syrup flavored with cardamom or rose water, giving the sweet a fragrant aroma and sweet taste. Kalo jam is typically served at special occasions such as weddings, festivals, and religious ceremonies. The name “kalo jam” literally translates to “black jam” in Bengali, referring to the dark brown color of the sweet.
