Mango Jam - 3 ingredient recipe - no pectin or preservatives

Want to make a simple and tasty Jam with just 3 ingredients. Look no further! This Jam will make you wanting for more. After making it, I felt like I have made Mango Halwa and just wanted to eat it from the bowl. it was that good.

I had a can of mango pulp and so I used that. If you want to use Fresh Mangoes please do go ahead. Adjust sugar according to the sweetness of the mango. Do you ever feel left out when people are doing seasonal posts? Like Mango recipe and drinks for Summer, cakes and cookies for Christmas, Sweets and savouries during Diwali time. I somehow miss many such posts. Mango season is all but over and here I am with a mango recipe.


Mango Pulp 2 cups
Sugar 1/4 cup
Lemon Juice 1 tbsp

Method of Preparation

1. Mix the mango pulp, sugar and lemon juice in a pan. I would recommend using a non stick pan so that your precious jam will not stick to the bottom!

2. Cook in medium-low heat stirring in between. You will probably need about 20 min.

3. When ready you will notice that it has a jam like texture instead of the watery pulp texture and it will be nice and shiny.

Enjoy with a slice of bread or as a dessert!


  1. looks so good! how long does it stay without preservatives .. just for my knowledge, i am sure wont last long coz we might just be gorging on it!

    1. it lasted for a week before it was finished. it was almost done the first couple of days. a spoonful was left in the jar unnoticed :-) May last more than that. but don't know.
