  • Pinch of cinnamon powder.
  • 3 cloves.



  • Peel and cube mango, apple, peach and pear or any other fruit.





  • In a saucepan, heat one cup of water on medium heat and add these fruits in the pan. (Tip: to preserve nutrients and vitamins of fruits, cook it on low or medium heat)
  • Add cardamom, ginger powder, cinnamon and cloves and stir it and allow it to simmer till fruits become tender. 
  • Cook till fruits become tender and add dribble of hot water while cooking if required.
