Ingredients

  • 1/4 kg raw mangoes
  • 200 gm sugar
  • 1 tsp orange colour
  • 2 inch piece of cinnamon stick
  • 2 to 3 cloves
  • 1/4 cup chopped dry fruits (cashews, almonds, chironji)

Method

  • Wash, peel and grate the mangoes.
  • Put it in a bowl of cold water to keep them from turning black.
  • Drain the water. Put it in a big vessel (in which it can be cooked).
  • Add sugar and orange colour. Mix well.
  • Add cinnamon stick and cloves.
  • Cook the mixture on medium to low flame.
  • Keep stirring and add dry fruits. Adding water isn't required as the mangoes and sugar will leave enough syrup for the mixture to get cooked.
  • When all the syrup is dried and it reaches to a single thread consistency, turn off the gas. The cooking time will be around 30 minutes.
  • The murabba is ready. Keep aside to cool.
  • Store in an air-tight container and refrigerate.
  • Serve with roti or bread.

Note: You can use the totapuri variety of raw mangoes for this preparation.
