You seem to have the sequence scrambled. Jagadhatri puja comes weeks after Kali Puja.
At any rate, Shumbha, Nishumbha, et al are not what's celebrated in Durga Puja. It's Mahishashur. I think Kali Puja coincides when Shumbh & Nishumbh were killed, unless it marks Bhadrakali slaying Darukasura rather than Mahakali slaying Raktabheej.
