  • 500 grams Figs ripe
  • 1/4 cup Lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Lemon zest
  • 2 tsps paprika (4-5 jalapenos will work too)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar


  • Wash and chop the figs and let them dry.
  • Add honey and figs in a pan and cook on high heat for about 5 mins till the figs start caramelise a bit.
  • Add the sugar and rest of the ingredients and let it cook and simmer for a while.
  • To check whether its done, dip a chilled spoon into the boiling jam mixture and hold it above the pan, if the jam falls down together like a sheet rather than falling in drops, its done.
