Serves: 4
  • Gooseberries – 500 grams
  • Sugar – 500 grams (2.5 cups)
  • Green cardamom – 4 to 5
  • Cinnamon stick – 2 inch
  1. Place a vessel on flame and put the gooseberries into it followed by a cup of water. Cover and cook till the gooseberries become soft.
  2. After 12 minutes, gooseberries will turn tender. Turn off the flame and drain out the gooseberries in a bowl and let them cool down for 2 minutes. Once the gooseberries cools down slightly, separate their wedges by pressing with fingers or using knife. Keep the gooseberries in another bowl and discard the seeds.
  3. Put the gooseberries in a mixer jar and grind them into fine paste. Take out the paste in a bowl. Place a wok on flame and transfer the gooseberry paste in it along with sugar. Mix them properly and cook until the jam becomes thick in consistency. Stir after every 1 to 2 minutes to prevent jam from sticking at the bottom of the wok. Partially cover the wok with a plate and stir the jam.
  4. Jam has turned thick, to check, take few drops of it in a bowl. Once it cools down, stick between the finger. It is solidifying. Gooseberry jam is ready, turn off the flame and add cinnamon-green cardamom powder to it. Mix them thoroughly. Transfer the gooseberry jam in a bowl.
  5. Serve this nutritious and delectable gooseberry jam with breads and paranthas. Store this jam in a container and relish eating it for 3-4 months.
