The chum chums will get a beautiful fawn colour. For the pieces being cooked from the second lot onwards (if any), water is added and the cooking time is reduced so that the chum chums do not get hard and too dark in colour. If you find that your chum chums are breaking, then add a little more sooji to the dough and blend it again.
