1 teaspoon corn oil or canola oil

1/2 cup jaggery sugar (if you want less, then use 1/4 cup, plus 2 tablespoons)

1 cup ripe fig, washed and cut very small (one cup of cut fig)

1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom


  1. Put a non-stick pan on stove over medium-low heat.  Pour in the oil and let it get hot.
  2. Add the jaggery sugar and continually stir so it won’t stick. When the sugar is melted half-way, put the fig in.
  3. Change the heat to low and keep stirring until the sugar is melted and the figs are cooked, about 10-12 minutes. After 10-12 minutes, mix in the cardamom.
  4. The figs are ready when they are very soft to the touch and won’t stick to your fingers. The jam will not be super thick.
