How to Make Cardamom Scented Chakka Pradhaman

  • Chop the jack fruit and puree it into a fine paste.
  • In a pan take a tsp of ghee and pour in the jack fruit paste. Add a little water if the puree is too thick.
  • Allow this to cook on medium flame for around ten minutes.
  • In a vessel, boil the jaggery with 1/4 cup of water till it melts.
  • Once done, filter it to remove impurities, and transfer the syrup to the cooked jack fruit pulp.
  • Stir and boil on medium flame for ten more minutes.
  • Now reduce the flame to low and add the coconut milk. Whisk well to blend everything and switch off the flame.
  • Do not let it boil after the coconut milk is added as it will start separating.
  • Now add the cardamom powder to the pradhaman.
  • Separately, fry cashews and coconut pieces in ghee until golden brown.
  • Add them to the pradhaman as garnish.
