Mango Jam with Cumin

This recipe couldn't be easier. Ten minutes away from a lovely breakfast - using the seasonal mango and my personal favorite spice, cumin.


Mango Jam with Cumin

1 cup Mango, skinned and cubed
1 tsp Cumin Seeds, roasted
1 tbsp Jaggery or Brown Sugar
1 tsp Salt


Mix all the ingredients together in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on High for 7 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes.

Transfer to a bowl. Spread on toast and enjoy!


I love the occasional cumin seed that pops into your mouth and adds a depth of flavor to this jam. It also works well with cinnamon powder. Store in a sterilized jar for up to a month.

This is off to dear Valli for this month's Microwave Cooking - Bottled. And to Raaga for WBB's Express Breakfast. And to Meeta's Monthly Mingle which features the lovely, seasonal mango this month.

Arundathi said...

Thanks everyone. Do try it - it was delicious and sweet.
Sra - yes, I wanted the taste of whole cumin to pop in the jam - not an overall cumin to taste - hope that helps! :)
