  4. Grind this cooked jackfruit in a mixer to form a paste or slightly mash it with the help of a wooden spoon. Meanwhile heat the third milk in a wide mouthed heavy bottomed pan or uruli and melt the jaggery in it.
  5. Strain the jaggery syrup to remove fine sand particles and reheat the same.
  6. Add the chakka varatti and reduce the fire to low, then keep stirring to dissolve and boil until the mixture thickens (if you're using chakka varatti or cooked chakka paste then it will melt in the coconut milk).
  7. Add the second milk and boil again while stirring continuously for about 10-15 minutes or until the mixture thickens.
  8. Finally add the first milk and cook for a couple of minutes, then turn off the flame. Keep stirring until the milk is incorporated well. Add in the dry ginger powder/chukku podi and cardamom powder.
