Mangaad is the Goan name for mango jam. Mangaad is prepared in almost every Goan home during mango season and it is a preserve made with the Goan Mangoes (Though the Mussarat or Monserrate variety are preferred, any fleshy mangoes can be used as long as they are not fibrous). It is the mangoes which lend the distinct taste to the jam. Mangaad is Sweet and Delicious. The jam may be applied on plain or toasted bread or hot chapatis or the Goan Poie / Baakri and served at breakfast or tea time or as a dessert topping or a topping on cream crackers. Whichever way you serve it just tastes yummy.
