CHAKKA PRADAMAN RECIPE | JACKFRUIT PAYASAM

   When i saw jackfruits in the wet market yesterday i picked up 2 packets of jackfruits keeping in mind making chakka pradaman today for Tamil New year today. But i don’t have any idea about the recipe and while i was having a casual talk with Raks  she also gave a idea and i vaguely remembered the way my mom makes jackfruit payasam. Finally today when i made this it turned out extremely nice and i am now waiting for everyone to come back from school and office to taste this jackfruit kheer.

payasam

 

JACK FRUIT 10- 15 PIECES
JAGGERY 1/2 CUP
COCONUT MILK(THICK) 1/2 CUP
CASHEW NUTS 5-7 NO
GHEE 1 TBLSP

payasam

METHOD:

  • Wash the jackfruit pieces and deseed them.
  • Cut them into pieces roughly.

  • Slightly roast them in a tsp of ghee for 2 minutes in a medium flame.

  • Pressure cook them for 2 whistles by adding a cup of water.
  • When done, allow it to cool and grind it into a smooth paste.

  • I got one and 1/4 cups of puree.
  • Melt the jaggery in 1/2 cup of water and filter the impurities.
  • Boil the jaggery water for 3 minutes in low flame.

  • Add the jackfruit puree to this and boil for 2 minutes.

  • Now add the coconut milk and just give a boil for 2 minutes in a low flame.
  • I used the store bought coconut milk.

  • Do not boil for a long time after adding the coconut milk. Else it will curdle.
  • Roast the cashews in ghee and add to the payasam.
  • This taste great when it is served warm and chilled.

Note:

  • Coconut milk can be replaced with normal milk, but i recommend the addition of coconut milk.
  • If the consistency is too thick just add 1/2 cup of water after the addition of coconut milk.
  • I never add cardamom powder as i feel this will suppress the flavor of jackfruit.
  • Adjust the level of jaggery according to the sweetness of the jackfruit.
