Mor Awala or Amla Murabba or Indian Gooseberry Jam is a way to store Awala/amla or gooseberry. As this is a seasonal fruit, Amla is preserved in many ways for the complete year. It is made as Mor Awala, Amal pickle (Sweet and Spicy), Amla Candies, Amla Juice and Amla Chutney.


Today I am going to show you how I make Mor Awala Recipe in English | Amla Murabba Recipe | Indian Gooseberry Jam.


1. Awala or Amla: 10-12 Numbers

2. Ginger: 2-4 Inch

3. Sugar: Same the size of chopped Awala

4. Cinnamon: 1 Inch (Optional)

5. Cardamom Powder: 1/2 Tea Spoon (Optional)



Step 1

Wash and pat dry Awalas. Then cut them into small pieces. Or you can use whole Awala also. Then take a deep pan and add enough water, boil water and turn the flame to medium.  

Step 2

Place a strainer over the pan and put Awalas in it. Cover the lid and steam for 10 minutes. Or you can pressure cook the Awalas. Then, remove from flame. 

Step 3

To make the sugar syrup, take a broad patella or pan. Add sugar (Same amount of sugar as Awalas are). Put the water till sugar is covered and place it on medium flame.

Step 4

Dissolve sugar completely while stirring continuously. Cook till syrup becomes thick. To check the syrup is done pour a drop on a plate and tilt it. If the syrup runs down then you have to cook it further. Check after five minutes, if the syrup sits on the plate after tilting that means it is ready.

Step 5

Once sugar syrup is thick like honey, add steamed Awalas and grated ginger, mix well and cook for 5-10 minutes. Once Awala pieces soak sugar syrup well switch off the flame and take off from the stove.

Step 6

Cool it completely. Store it in an airtight jar. And store it in refrigerator. It can be consumed at least for 6-7 months.

Mor Awala or Amla Murabba is made in different ways. One such wonderful recipe is shared by Mrs. Sujata Roy Mam..
