GINGER-MINT TOMATO JAM


This is a jam to be served with biriyani,or any

type of rice . After I innovated and tasted this

recipe only ,I thought it could be served with

even samosas, or used as a spread for wraps

or sandwiches.

I used to make this jam with tomatoes

alone,but today I wanted to make something

different.

So started with mint,ginger,and jaggery

( vellam) .

You could use brown sugar,country

sugar,or even sugar . Believe me your tastebuds

will have a feast.Awesome taste!

The ingredients are suited best for digestion!
