HAPPY NEW YEAR 2013 .....................
Jujups will be everyone's favorite in their schooldays.I tasted this sweet a lot but I don’t know what to call it as . Anyway , it was a sweet ( candy ) for me from my school days.
I would wonder from which they made these . I didn’t get the answer before came through this blog.
After blogging , I came across this recipe from jayasree of Experiments in kailaskitchen. check the original recipe here.
Though the requirements may be simple , it consumes more of your energy.There are many varities using agar agar , although i find it is healthy with natural ingredients. Iam happy to share this wonderful yet simple recipe on this new year...............
Grated papaya – 2 cup
Sugar – 1 ½ cup
Salt – 2 tbs
Water – ¾ cup
Essence – 2 tsp
Wash and drain the grated papaya.
Cook till all the water are evaporated. It may take about 20 minutes.
Now add , the sugar and stir well. Sugar will melt and the pulp thickens. This involves ten to fifteen minutes.
The mixture won’t stick to the pan at this stage.
Make into your desired shape when the mixture is at hand holding temperature.
Then roll this jujups in the sugar.
The papaya must be ripe and firm .
