  • 8-10 raw mangoes
  • 100 g of Fitkari (Alum)
  • 1.5 kg of sugar


  1. Peel the skin off the mangoes. Slice each mango in half. Make slits all over in the middle section of each slice of the mango using a fork. Repeat for all the slices.
  2. Soak these mango slices in fitkari and water for 10-12 hours.
  3. Take out the mango slices and wash by soaking in 2-3 separate bowls of water so that the sour water is removed completely. Squeeze the mango slices so that the water comes out. Set aside the cleaned mangoes.
  4. Heat a pan with sugar. Add the mangoes one at a time right when the sugar starts to melt. Cook for 5-10 minutes on high heat.
  5. Cook the mangoes in the molten sugar for 1-2 days on low heat so that the sugar enters into the mangoes through the slits before the sugar becomes sticky.
  6. The mango morobbas will be ready when the sugar becomes sticky in a day or two.
  7. Pour the mango morobbas in a pickle jar and enjoy for 5-6 months.
