Strawberry jam

Strawberries!!! yes that is how I scream when I see fresh and luscious Strawberries in any fruit shop. Winter is the season of these juicy beauties so I thought of making Strawberry jam. It is a very simple recipe and the result is always good! See the recipe below. Hey but before that, do you know that Strawberries contain antioxidants, minerals and lot vitamins which contributes to the overall health benefits of this amazing fruit. And by the way, I have not used any preservative in this jam recipe.



  • Strawberries 500 gms
  • Sugar 1 cup
  • Lemon juice 1 table spoon
  • Sterilized jar 1 (To keep the jam)


First clean the strawberries and chop into medium pieces.

Now heat the pan and add the chopped strawberries along with sugar.

You will see Strawberries start leaving the water and also the sugar will start to melt.

Keep stirring with a wooden spatula till you see the strawberry pulp is thick and sticking to the spatula.

In the end, add one spoon of lemon juice and stir well.

Now you can fill the jam in a sterilized jar and keep it for at least 2 weeks.

The shelf life of this jam is less because there are no preservatives added.



Corn canapes

Hello everyone!

Wishing you all a very happy new year! how are you my friends? I know it is been really a long time since I posted my recipes here. My apologies for keeping you waited. I was feeling lazy for past few days and that kind of delayed me to post.

But here I am again with a quick and interesting starter recipe, Corn Canapes.



  • American sweet corn 1 cup
  • Tomato 1
  • Black pepper powder 1 tea spoon
  • Onion 1
  • Capsicum 1
  • Coriander leaves for garnishing
  • Canapes 1 packet
  • Salt to taste
  • Chat masala 1 tea spoon (Available in all Asian markets)
  • Lemon juice 1 table spoon
  • Cumin powder 1/2 tea spoon


First boil the sweet corn and keep it aside.

Chop onion, tomato, capsicum and coriander finely.

In a bowl, mix sweet corn, onion, tomato, capsicum, and coriander leaves.

Add salt, chat masala, cumin powder, black pepper, lemon juice into the mixture and mix well.

While serving, put one spoon of this salad mixture into the canapes to add that extra bit of crunchiness and serve.

PS. Sorry for the bad quality picture, due to short time, I took the picture using mobile camera.

Tip : You can replace the capsicum with cucumber. It tastes equally good!
