Of Flavours & Tastes…

Chakkayappam !! (Puréed Jack fruit,Rice & Jaggery snack )

Here is another fantastic recipe from Lakshmi Nair ! It’s significant that we are not using jack fruit preserve here as we use in chakka ada.Made from fresh sweet jack fruits,it’s quiet easy to make,yet a fabulous snack to cherish!! Obviously I have made few changes as per my needs.


2.5 cups ground,sweet jack fruit (Since mine was not so ripened,I have cooked it in 1/2 cup water and puréed)
2.5 cups roasted rice flour
1 cup grated jaggery (medium sweet.If you want,can add more)
1/2 cup grated coconut
1/2 cup chopped coconut
1 tsp cardamom powder
Banana Leaves-as required (you may use aluminium foil/parchment paper as well)


In a bowl,mix puréed jack fruit,rice flour,jaggery,coconut and cardamom powder.Mix well with hand to make a loose dough.Now take banana leaves one by one and drop handful of dough into it.Fold it so that it will be a thin appam (You may not flatten the dough since it’s a loose dough.Folding will do).Now shift this to a steamer and close the lid.Steam it for 20-25 minutes in medium heat.
