Bael fruit Moramba (Jam)



Moramba means Indian jam . ‘Mor’ means ‘murane’  in Marathi and which in English means ‘Soaked’.  Generally in Maharashtrians it is made of raw mangoes. However, my diary has a unqiue recipe of Moramba made from Baelfal or ‘Bael’


The main Ingredients required include :
One Kg ripe Bael
One Kg. Sugar
Lemon juice to taste
2 tspns Cardmom powder
1 teaspoon Salt

To make the Jam, open the Bael fruit. Grease your hand with oil and remove all seeds and stringy part of fruit. Separate the fruit from the outer shell, cut into small pieces. Then make sugar syrup of one-thread consistency. Once done add lemon juice. salt and Bael and continue cooking till the syrup thickens. At the end add Cardamom powder and mix. Cool it and store it in an airtight jar.
