How to make Chakka (Jackfruit) Pradhaman or Payasam

  1. Discard the seeds of jack fruit and take the fruit only. Chop and pressure cook the jack fruit pieces for 1 whistle with very less water. Grind it to a paste. I got 1 cup of jack fruit pulp. Keep it aside.
  2. Melt 1 cup of jaggery in little water. Then filter it to remove the impurities. Grate 1 full coconut, grind adding warm water and extract the first milk (around 1 cup). Keep it aside.
  3. Add more warm water to it and extract the second coconut milk (around 1 1/2 cup). Heat 2 tsp of ghee, fry cashew nuts and remove it from the pan. Then add the coconut pieces and fry till golden brown. Keep it aside.
  4. Add the jack fruit pulp to the jaggery along with 2 tsp of ghee and cook till it becomes slightly thick. Add the second coconut milk and boil for a few minutes.
  5. Add the first coconut milk, cardamom powder and turn off the flame. Do not boil after adding the first coconut milk.
  6. Garnish with fried cashew nuts and coconut pieces and raisins. Serve hot.

This is very interesting, having jackfruit in a slight sweet form sounds very interesting.
