Aam ka Murabba / Raw Mango Chunda - India

According to Wikipedia - Murabba as savory jam or pickle prepared with raw mangoes, sugar and spices. It can be even compared to marmalade or jelly.  Use of grated mango or sliced mango and the type of spices used may vary region to region.

Raw mango is known as Mangai in Tamil and as Aam in Hindi and Aamba in Marathi.

For the marathon this week the theme is Condiment from Countries, wherein we have to choose condiments, sauces, spreads or seasonings - its week 3 - day 17.

Condiment - Pickle
Country - India 


4 Cups  Grated Raw Mango - packed
4 Cups Sugar  - I used unrefined sugar
1 Teaspoon Red chilli powder
1/2 Teaspoon Cardamom powder
1/4 Teaspoon Salt 

Wash, peel and grate raw mangoes.

Heat a thick bottom pan or non-stick pan; add grated mango, sugar and keep cooking in moderate heat by stirring in between.

When the mixture is reduced to half by volume, add the spices and keep cooking till the mixture thickens to a jam like consistency and all the moisture from the sugar and mangoes evaporates.

After cooling it fully, store in sterilized glass bottle. Store it in the fridge since I have not used any preservative
