Homemade mango jam recipe/How to make easy mango jam/ 3 ingredients mango jam recipe

The king of fruits is in season and the market is flooded with Mangoes. So like every year today I have made the very favourite Mango Jam. This is a tried and tested recipe and emensely loved by many. I love making this recipe more than savouring it.

This homemade mango jam is a super easy recipe with just 3 ingredients and it just takes less than 20 mins to make this easy mango jam. It has the perfect sweetness from the combination of mangoes and sugar and a little twist of tanginess from the lemon juice.

My son is a big fan of jams and mango being one of his favourite he loves this mango jam a lot. More than applying in bread, rotis or topping up in desserts he loves to lick the jam as it is 😜. In my home this jam doesn’t last for long as it finishes off in jiffy.

This homemade mango jam is very much better as compared to the market bought. No pectin, no preservatives and no artificial colour, just 3 ingredients and your finger licking delicious jam is ready. It taste divine and the flavour is amazing.

This delectable mango jam can be used in your various daily cookings. This can be served as a toppings in pancakes or any desserts, can be had as fillings in bread, toast, sandwiches, rotis etc. This can also be used in your cakes and cookies to give a mango flavour to your bakes. Try this mango jam in Berry Jam Cake by replacing the berry jam with this mango jam. Apart from everything I would love to have it just like that to kill my sweet carvings 😁.


Keep a plate in the fridge preferably in freezer for faster chilling. Once the jam thickens, add a small portion of the jam to the chilled plate. The mix will cool down immediately. Tilt the plate, if the jam stays where it is then it is perfect. But if it starts dripping, it indicates that it still needs further cooking.


You can add a dash of cardamom to add extra flavor the jam.

You can add minced ginger to make ginger mango jam.

You can also use other spice like nutmeg powder, or mix spice powder to make a spiced mango jam.

You can also make the popular Habanero Mango Jam by adding a few whole habenero chillies along with mangoes.

Instead of regular sugar you can use palm sugar, powdered jaggery, cane sugar, honey etc


The colour and flavor of the jam greatly depends on the quality of mango. Use ripe and flavorful mangoes that are pulpy and with less strings.

Lemon juice acts as natural preservative, so use lemon to increase the shelf life of homemade jam, spreads etc.

Recommend to refrigerate the jam as we are not using any preservative.

Always use clean and dry spoon whenever serving the jam.

Make sure the bottle is clean and dry before storing. You can also use sterilized jars if you prefer.


The right setting temperature for Mango Jam is 105 Celsius/220 Fahrenheit.


Store the jam in a sterilized airtight jar in refrigerator. It stays good for atleast a month in refrigerator and atleast upto 3 months in freezer.

You can follow standard canning process and can the mango jam for longer shelf life upto a year.
