You can always use fresh puréed mango pulp to make this Aam Peda recipe during Mango season. But you can also enjoy these delicious Mango Pedas whenever you please, even when Mangoes are not in season. These beautiful and irresistibly flavourful Instant Mango Pedas can also be enjoyed all year round by using canned mango pulp.

They taste the same and are in fact faster to make when you use canned mango pulp as it saves you the time and effort of cutting the mangoes and removing and puréeing the mango pulp.


As sweetness of Mangoes varies a lot, sugar should be adjusted according to the sweetness of the pulp.

"Use a Non-Stick Pan and Don’t Overcook"

The mixture is very sticky and tends to stick to the pan a lot, so try and use a non-stick pan for this Aam Pedha recipe. Always cook on low heat only whilst stirring constantly to avoid mixture from burning.


Make sure there are no lumps in the mixture and remove from heat as soon as mixture starts holding shape and doesn’t stick as much to the pan.

It’s very important to not OVERCOOK the mixture or the Mango Pedhas will turn hard, sticky, and chewy instead of having a nice soft and smooth texture.

After removing from heat immediately transfer the mixture in a bowl to cool down. Leaving it in hot pan will mean that mixture will keep cooking further and its texture will change.
