Murrbo (Sweet mango chutney/jam)

Murrbo (Mango chutney)-Sweet and tangy mango chutney (jam) delicately flavoured with cinnamon, cloves and cardamom.


16 oz raw mangoes
12 oz sugar
6 cloves
4 small cinnamon sticks
6 whole cardamoms slightly crushed to release flavour
1 glass of water
1 tablespoon Lemon juice


1. Wash, pat ,dry and peel mangoes. Cut into 1/2 inch cubes
2. Boil mango till slightly tender but still retaining its shape, remove from heat and drain water and keep aside mango.
3. In a thick bottomed pan, mix sugar with 1 glass water .
4. Heat it, while mixing at frequent intervals till sugar dissolves completely.
5. Skim off any grey foam, which are impurities from the sugar. Add lemon juice. It will help to avoid crystallization of sugar.
6.To the sugar syrup, add the boiled mangoes, cardamoms, cloves and cinnamon and mix properly.
7. Let it boil for few minutes and then put it on medium heat. Keep stirring at regular intervals till cooked. Approx 7-8 minutes.When the mixture resembles jam like consistency remove from heat.
