Now add chilled water and add to it the black salt, chat masala, roasted cumin powder, along with slit green chillies and finally add the lemon juice.

Jamun Jam

We all have eaten the traditional mixed fruit jam, strawberry jam and some other variants like mango, pineapple etc. as well. But when jamun is in season, trying to make a jamun jam makes perfect sense. This fruit is an Indian berry and has all the right qualities to make it a mouth-watering spread that one can enjoy on bread, rotis or paratha. Here is how you make it.

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes

  • Serves: 1 big-size jar


  • Jamun: 1 kg
  • Sugar: 1.5 cup
  • Lemon Juice: 1 whole lemon juice

  1. To use the jamun, first, you wash them thoroughly and then chop them and remove the seeds. Now take a heavy bottom pot and add the jamuns to it. Add not more than half a cup of water and cook the jamuns with a covered lid. Once they turn mushy and soft you cool them and blend them into a smooth paste. Alternatively, you can also mash them using a masher and leave the jamuns chunky if you prefer a chunky texture.
  2. In another pan, add the sugar and keep stirring till the sugar melts, add the juice of a whole lime and keep stirring to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  3. Now add the jamun mixture to it. Stir well and cook until the mixture loses its water content and thickens.
  4. Cool the jam completely, and transfer it to a cool and dry glass jar. This jam remains good under refrigeration for about 1 month.
