Gulamba / Instant Raw Mango Jam

Hello Foodies,
            Mangolicious Jam! Sharing with you delicious fruit spread, raw mango jam/gulamba recipe, which will last for a year. Many varieties of fruit preserves are made globally. This raw mango spread is one of them. You must try this easy raw Mango Jam recipe made without pectin. No sugar in this recipe is wonderful! It tastes incredible, balanced, and perfectly tangy and sweet. Traditionally we use Mango and Jaggery in equal ratio, but I have cut down the jaggery by ½ because I used mangoes here were sweet. If you are using sour Mangoes, then take Jaggery and Mango in equal ratio. Full of fruity flavor, this delightful jam is excellent for chapati roll(roti). This recipe reminds me of the flavor I loved as a child.
            The delicious gulamba tastes great with chapati, bread, or ice cream. This jam happens to be a favorite food of mine, and summer doesn't feel complete without raw mango Panna and a batch of my mom style raw mango jam. Given ingredients makes about 700 g of jam. I made this jam with fresh raw green mangoes that I have got from my friends home garden.  This unique sweet and tangy jam makes a perfect gift too. The spices add wonderful flavor. This jam has a flavor that compliments anything it's served with. Let's get started!

How to make Raw Mango Jam
To make this really simple homemade raw Mango Jam, you need two main ingredients and some spices to flavor it. Peel, grate the mangoes and cook with the jaggery until it thickens and needs some time to cook. In a few minutes, you will have created a sweet and luscious raw mango jam. For making this jam, I reduced the amount of Jaggery since the mangoes were so sweet. If you can't find jaggery, you can use sugar instead of jaggery. Also, I have added some spices to flavor it.

My Take:

  • Lemon juice also helps the jam set up and will also help prevent the growth of bacteria.
  • If your mangoes are too sour, you will need to add more jaggery.
