With pineapples in season, cooking with these sweet juicy fruits seems to be the most natural thing to do. I made murabba today. Murabba is an Arabian word that refers to sweet or savoury jam in parts of India, Pakistan, and Iran. It is traditionally sweet prepared with mangoes, plums, apricots, Indian gooseberry (amla) and resembles a fruit preserve. Other fruits and vegetables like carrots, tomatoes, ash gourd, apples, wood apples, and the spice, ginger, are all used to make this preserve.

Just before it was done, I added the juice of half a lemon into the mixture. This was cooled, transferred to a glass jar and kept in the fridge. From tomorrow (but not on a regular basis because it's sweet) it's going to accompany our parathas and toasts.
