RECIPE: Kerala Jackfruit Sweet with Jaggery (Chakka Varattiyathu)
This delicious sweet is a traditional Kerala dessert.
2 cups fresh jackfruit, chopped
1.5 cups SaveAGram jaggery
1 tablespoon ghee
Coconut milk (optional)
Cook the jackfruit with a bit of water, then blend.
In an iron wok, melt jaggery with 1/5 cup water and boil a bit for 10 mins.
Add blended jackfruit to melted jaggery. Stir and cook for 15 mins.
Add 1 tablespoon ghee

For a “tighter” sweet, keep it a bit longer on the fire. Our version has a more jam-like consistency
Eat as a dessert. You can also add coconut milk (optional).
