Chakka Pradhaman Recipe - Jackfruit Payasam Recipe - Onam Sadya Recipes



This is one of my all time favourite payasam. I have made this many times but i forgot to take pictures of them, so couldn't share it here. Finally i made this few weeks back and reserved it for sharing it during onam..



This payasam is so easy to make, many people make chakka varatti first and then use that to make this.. But i just made this using jack fruits. The key for getting the perfect taste is to cook the jack fruit with jaggery for quite a long time, till it gets jam like. This gives you the perfect taste.


Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..

Jackfruit / Chakka - 4 cups chopped

Chana Dal / Kadalai Paruppu - 3/4 cup

Water - 3 cups + more as needed
Cardamom Powder / Yelakai Podi - 1 tsp
