Cooking has always been my passion. I prefer simple recipes with easily available ingredients.

I love candy. Although I usually buy it at the supermarket, I recently wondered if I could make it at home.

Mango candy is one of my favorites, which is the reason I decided to try making this type first. The recipe I had originally wanted to use called for mango pulp, which I didn't have. As a substitute, I used mango-flavored drink mix. Mango pulp probably would have made the candy even more delicious, but the end result was still very good.


For the candy:

  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 8 tablespoons mango-flavored drink mix
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons corn flour

For the optional topping:

  • desiccated coconut


  1. Dissolve the mango-flavored drink mix in the water to create a thick mixture with the consistency of juice. (Or, if you prefer, you can substitute pure mango pulp, which would add a more natural flavor to the candy.)
  2. Add the sugar and dissolve it. Taste and add more sugar if necessary. The sweetness of the mixture will depend on the drink mix you use or the type of mangoes you use.
  3. Add the corn flour and mix well.
  4. Transfer the mixture to a pan and heat it on medium flame until thick. Stir continuously as the mixture thickens.
  5. Transfer the mixture to a mould greased with oil. Allow it to cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate for a minimum of 4 hours.
  6. Once set, cut it into the shapes you prefer and serve with the optional desiccated coconut topping.

      I love coconut, so I would definitely use it as a topping. I'm sure I would love the mango flavor of your jelly candies, too. Your video is a great addition to the article.

      Thank you for sharing such a wonderful recipe. I'm fond of candies and the recipe seems easy, so I will try out once the mango season begins. I love mangoes and mango jelly is my all time favorite. The color looks so impressive. Overall, I'm in love with it and will try it in the summer.

      The jelly color is just so vibrant! I love anything with mango flavor because mango is one of my favorite fruits. This recipe seems easy to do it at home. I never made mango jelly before. Thank you for sharing this recipe, Heera.
