  • Heat the Cheenachatty/cooking vessel and change the grinded jackfruit into the cheenachatty and mix it well
  • Add Jaggery into this mix and stir it further
  • When the colour of the mix turns into brown, add Ghee and stir it well continuously.
  • When the mix becomes thick (like fruit jam), put off the stove and continue to stir it for some more time (if necessary add some more ghee).
  • Chakkappazham (Jackfruit, ripened) varattiyath is ready. This can be used for making Chakka Ada, Chakka Paayasam etc. or even can eat directly like eating chocolates.


(After cooling this mix, change it into an air tight container and keep it in the refrigerator so that it can store for a long period (at-least 3 – 4 months, subject to the condition of packing and storing) and as and when required it can be used for making Ada, Paayasam etc.)
