The following are the ingredients needed for preparing Inji Marappa,

  • Ginger - 1 cup  (Wash well and peel the skin)
  • It can either be 1 cup of chopped pieces which should be ground into a fine paste or 1 cup of grated ginger.

Alternatively, you can also use ginger powder.

  • Sugar - 2 cups
  • Cardamom powder - a pinch (optional)
  • Salt - a pinch
  • Water - 1/2 - 1 cup
  • Ghee / oil - 1 tablespoon

Preparation Steps

  1. Take a wide heavy bottomed pan, add two cups of sugar and pour in enough water until sugar has immersed in it.
  2. Keep stirring until it melts and becomes syrup. 
  3. Test whether it has one string consistency using your thumb and index finger.
  4. At this stage, add ginger paste / grated ginger and mix well.
  5. Once it has mixed, add salt and cardamom powder.
  6. Keep stirring until it attains a thicker consistency.
  7. You can check this with the help of water in a small plate. Add less than half a teaspoon of the syrup in water and try rolling it, if the contents stick together then the consistency is perfect.
  8. You can see the bubbles boiling and rising up.
  9. Now turn off the flame. Take a flat surfaced container or plate and grease it with ghee or oil.
  10. Pour the contents onto the plate and gently tap so that it fits evenly and flat.
  11. In five minutes start cutting the pieces into preferable shape and size. It would be hard to cut once it has set well.
  12. Keep this aside for 20 - 30 minutes. The pieces are now set and the shapes will be perfect too. 
  13. You can remove the pieces one by one and store them in an airtight container. This can be stored for a month.
  14. Quantity of sugar can be increased or decreased as per preference. 
  15. As a healthy alternative, you can try this with jaggery too instead of sugar. In that case take  3 - 4 cups of crushed jaggery in a pan with half a cup of water, melt it into a syrup and filter it before boiling the same for preparing Inji Marappa.
