  • 400 gm Strawberries
  • 300 gms Sugar / Chini
  • 1 tsp Lemon Juice / Nimbu Ka Ras
  • 1 tsp Butter, Unsalted / Makkhan
  • 1/2 tsp Lemon Zest / Nimbu Ka Chhilka, Ghisa Hua
  • pinch of Salt / Namak


  • Wash the strawberries well and remove the leaves.
  • Chop them into medium size pieces
  • Add them in a cooking pan and then add sugar and mix.
  • Cover the pan let it rest for 2 hours .
  • Mash the strawberry slightly with a spoon.
  • Put the pan on the gas stove and cook on low heat till the sugar melts.
  • Now add lemon juice,mix and give it a boil.
  • Now remove the pan from the heat and with a spoon try to remove the scum formed on top of the jam (it helps to get a clear and bright colour jam)
  • Now add the lemon zest and cook the jam on low heat and keep mashing the strawberries in between.
  • When jam starts to thicken then add butter in it and mix.
  • Remember that the jam will thicken further when it cool down completely so cook accordingly.
  • Now do the plate test- -put a spoon full of jam in a plate and check ,if the water separates from the pulp then you need to cook it further,and if it remains at the same place then its done.
  • Let the jam cool down completely.
  • Store in a sterilized glass bottle and keep refrigerated.
