CHAKKA VARATTIYATHU / JACK FRUIT JAM

 

This one was my grandma’s masterpiece. I must say the thought of this dessert made from ripe jack fruit makes me drool. This jackfruit jam can be used to make Elaappams/Idanaappams. Although the dish consumes time, I must say it’s worth trying…
 
Chakka Varattiyathu 
 
1kg of the ripe jackfruit’s flesh pieces
500g jaggery
5tbsp ghee
5 cardamoms crushed
1/2 tsp dry ginger powder

 

 
  • Deseed the flesh pieces of the jackfruit and cut them into small pieces.
  • Melt the jaggery pieces to get a syrup
  • Pressure cook them with 1/2 cup of water so that they are well cooked.
  • In a heavy bottomed pan on flame pour ghee
  • Add the cooked jackfruit to the pan and mash them
  • When the water gets evaporated, add the jaggery syrup and continue stirring
  • Stir well till the jaggery jack fruit mix starts getting sticky
  • Take care to stir the mix well avoiding from sticking to the vessel
  • Add the crushed cardamoms and dry ginger powder, stirring well
  • When it thickens well remove from flame
  • Let it cool and then store them in airtight containers
