Managed or Mango jam is made using just mangoes and sugar without any preservative which makes it very special. This jam is found mostly in Goa where we get special mangoes called “Musarad” or “Monserrat” , pulpy kind used for jam.
Mangad is Goan Jam made out of special mangoes named “Monserrat” or “Mustard” we get in Goa. These are special mangoes used only to make mango jam as they are very juicy and pulpy. During my childhood my aunt used to make huge quantity of this jam and store it. We kids used to feast on it. Today I made this super tasty mango jam with the help of my mom and it turned out super tasty. If you don’t find such kind mangoes in your area then not to worry, use any kind mangoes you get in your locality.
Preparation Time: 10 Minutes
Cooking Time: 60 Minutes
7-8 big Size mangoes ( 2 Kg)
1 Kg Sugar
2 Teaspoons cardamom powder
Wash mangoes thoroughly 3-4 times .
Peel off mangoes and remove the pulp .
Grind the pulp to smooth puree using mixer grinder and take out the puree in a heavy bottom pan . Some use non stick pan , but I avoid non stick wherever I can.
Keep the pan on medium heat and stir occasionally using wooden or plastic spatula.
Cook for around 30 minutes or till you see it getting thick.
Add sugar , mix and keep cooking . The mixture splutters , so be careful. Keep stirring in between.
Once sugar is added, the mixture becomes thin again . It will eventually start getting ticker again.
After an hour or so the mixture becomes thick will start leaving sides of pan.
Add cardamom powder , mix and remove from heat.
Once it is cooled down completely, store in glass jar.
