Roselle Jam

Roselle jam

Roselle (টেঙামৰা) or Hibiscus is used in Assamese cuisine to make fish curries and sour lentil curries. Both roselle leaves and fruits are used for this purpose. We can also make pickle and a very decisions sour tea from roselle fruit. Yesterday I made roselle jam from the red calyx of roselle fruit. It's very simple to make and can be served in breakfast by making jam bread or jam sandwich.
