Image

Preparation time– 5 min

Cooking time– 45-60 min

Ingredients

Cape Gooseberry / Indian Rasbhari – 1 kg

Grounded Clove powder- ½ tsp

Sugar- 1 ¼ cup

Method

Wash the gooseberries and slice them roughly. In a heavy bottom pan add the berries and simmer for 5-10 min stirring occasionally. When the berries have loosened their hardness and have released some water add sugar. On medium high flame bring the mixture to boil. Then lower the flame, simmer while stirring now and then to avoid sticking/ burning of sugar. Put a plate in the freezer, after the jam mixture has been simmering away for 30-40 minutes take out the plate and drop a spoon to test the density. If it is not runny Jam is done. If it is still runny simmer for next 5-10 minutes. Pour the jam in sterilized jars and close the lid. Put in the refrigerator once the jar has been opened. Also as summer shall be here in next 2 months would recommend placing the UN-opened jars in the refrigerator.

A food enthusiast who finds cooking a stress buster. A core Rajasthani married to a Bengali, my kitchen is always happily churning out dishes covering both the states as well as many other experiments including all things sweet :) Baking has never been a part of my growing years and messing around in the kitchen schedule. Primarily because baking without egg never seemed like an option...why ? Well this goes wayyy back. I am a Bhargava who are strictly vegetarians by choice and religion. Hence no onion, garlic , eggs etc can even enter the house..forget the kitchen. But growing years of every generation had their share of baked goodies which always had eggs. My Grandfather ( Mother's father) used to assist in a bakery during his college days in Rawalpindi..this was before India's independence and hence all the bakeries etc were British. My grampa still swears by the taste of all the amazing patisseries and almond milk etc. My mother had her share during her Convent school days and so did I. For my father there was a twist, by the time he grew up his mother had allowed onion and eggs in kitchen ....yippeee. But then eventually every one grows up and the religion factor comes into the picture. Hence till date at my Mother's place no onion in the kitchen. But i married a bengali who was nowhere near to be a vegetarian. So after many... failed, not so successful, will do, oohh good, disaster, can you keep the taste consistent, too much salt and loads of patience i have finally managed to start cooking the way dishes are supposed to be. Hence my blog focuses on baked goodies, vegetarian Bhargava food and Bengali food that i have learned from my husband and In laws. Not to miss the name SweetJaw as i cannot stay away from sweet ..not in any form but i guess cakes, cookies, tarts, pastries, Indian sweets in fact any things that is either baked, deep fried, and has chocolate , icing sugar is bound be the best. So my blog's name is shamelessly SweetJaw
