When it is Mango season, that too when we get ripe mangoes, this jam can be prepared and stored. 

Ripe Mango - 5 nos
Sugar - 2 cups
Water - 3/4th to 1 cup
Saffron threads - a pinch
Cardamom powder - a pinch

Peel the skin and remove the pulp to a shallow bowl. Pressure cook the pulp for about 5 mins or microwave high for about 3 mins in micro high. Mash the mangoes to form a fine pulp.

In a shallow bottom pan add water and sugar and make sugar syrup, the sugar should form one string consistency. Add the mango pulp, cardamom powder and saffron threads and mix well. Boil the mixture till it leaves the sides of the pan and forms a thick pulp.

Store it in airtight container.
