Mango Jam - Make it Monday: Recipe of the Month

Here is one more Mango recipe, let's make the most of it while they are in season!
This time a 'Sweet' one with a surprise ingredient. My Grandpa used to make this Jam all the time when we were little!

As far as I am concerned I love anything Mango and this recipe is a childhood favourite.


Semi-ripe Mangoes- 2 Medium
Sugar - 1 Cup or as per your taste
Saffron Strands- 8 or 9
Cardamom Powder - 1/3 Tsp
Lemon Juice - 1 Tsp
Water as needed


  • Peel and grate the Mangoes
  • Transfer the pulp to a non-stick pan and cook on medium heat
  • Add the Sugar gradually
  • Cook till the mixture reaches a thick consistency, taste to see if you need more sugar as this depends on how sour your mango is
  • Add Saffron, Cardamom and Lemon juice
  • Keep cooking till the mixture thickens and becomes transparent and reaches Jam consistency, add water if required.
  • Cool and Store in a jar in the refrigerator
