When I read about 'Jujups ' in Jayashree's blog almost one year ago. I decided to try out this lovely candy. Jayashree told that it was her MIL's recipe. I made some minor changes in the recipe and it turned out very well. Instead of store bought chocolate and toffee, this is the best option for children. They enjoy it like anything.
Grated papaya - 1 cup (papaya should be ripped and firm)
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Orange crush - 2 tablespoon
Salt - 1 teaspoon
Water - 1/4 cup
Lime juice - 1 tablespoon
Caster sugar - 2 tablespoon
Soak grated papaya in water with salt. Keep covered for half an hour. Wash and drain the water from papaya. Heat a heavy bottom kadai. Add grated papaya and 1/4 cup water. Cover and cook till whole water is evaporated. Add sugar into it. Keep stirring continuously. When sugar melts and papaya turns into sticky mass, add lime juice and orange crush. Mix well and cook for another 5 min. papaya should leave the sides. Grease a plate with ghee and transfer this mixture to it. When the mixture gets warm, put little water to your palms. Take a small ball and give a desire shape to it. spread caster sugar in one plate and roll and coat Jujups one by one with the sugar.
