Chakka Varatti Pradhaman Recipe - Traditional Jackfruit Payasam

Chakka Varatti Payasam Recipe

I made Chakka Varatti Payasam using homemade chakka varatti...chakka translated to jackfruit.Traditionally Chakka Pradhaman is made using chakka varatti but the one I posted previously was using fresh jackfruit, but always wanted to try Chakka Pradhaman using varatti, and finally I did! It was soo yummy, easy to make when you have chakka varatti in stock.The flavour is totally different and I so so loved it.

My Notes:

  • The sweetness in chakka was just enough for us.If you prefer you can add little more jaggery syrup.
  • After coconut milk is added don't let it cook for more time, it will start to curdle.
  • You can even add ghee fried raisins to the payasam.
  • I refrigerated varatti so it was a bit thick to handle.So blended it with milk to get it smooth though this step is optional.
  • I extracted fresh coconut milk and used it which is best in flavour for any payasam.
