How To Make Jamun Papad | Jamun Papad Recipe:
To make jamun papad, take a cup of jamun and deseed the fruit entirely. Put this pulp in a blender, and with that, add two teaspoons of sugar, two teaspoons chaat masala, one teaspoon black salt, two tablespoon cornflour and one tablespoon of lemon juice. Mix the ingredients until a smooth puree is formed. Pour this puree in a non-stick pan and keep stirring for 5-10 minutes on low to medium flame. Make sure no lumps are formed.
When the puree gets thick, turn off the gas, cool down for 20 minutes, and then spread the puree out on a plastic sheet. Now, let this layer of jamun dry in the sun for two days. Cut it out in small square shapes and enjoy the sweet and tangy jamum papad.
