It’s already mid-June, so savour mango mania while it lasts because pretty soon the only place you’re going to spot the king of fruits, is in the frozen aisle of your grocery store. 

We have already curated a bunch of yummy ways you can use green mangoes in your kitchen and also cooked up a storm with savoury mango recipes. And now, we could use something sweet. Here’s presenting some beginner-friendly mango dessert recipes which can also double up as breakfast or snacks.

Mango jam

Pooja Mitra

Craving a mango condiment for breakfast, lunch and dinner? Here’s how you can sort a DIY jam in under 20 minutes!

Ingredients:

  • 5-7 ripe mangoes
  • 2 small cups of sugar (granulated or powdered)
  • 1 tablespoon kesar
  • 2-3 tablespoons of butter

Recipe:

  • Scoop ripe mangoes and make a fine paste in a blender with a few strands of kesar
  • In a non-stick pan, add butter and let it melt. Add sugar (depending on the sweetness of the mango and your preference). 
  • Stir continuously in low flame till the sugar has melted. Add the mango pulp and keep stirring intermittently on low flame to avoid the surface getting burnt. Add a few more strands of kesar once the pulp is thick in consistency, with no water residue in the pan. 
  • Transfer the jam to an airtight container when it has cooled. Serve with crepes or toasts!

Tip:

  1. Make this in small batches since it keeps in the refrigerator for about 72 hours

  • Right before turning on the oven, mix the mango pulp and cubes and give it a good fold. 
  • Take a non-stick pan and brush butter or oil of your choice. Put a dollop of butter in the pan and spread evenly.
