Quick & Easy version of Chakka Pradhaman without Chakka Varatti

Ingredients

Chakka Pradaman is a traditional payasam of Kerala. It is a mouth-watering dessert that makes the taste buds tingling. Usually this is prepared for Onam Sadhaya. The main ingredients of chakka prathaman are chakka varattiyathu and jaggery. But making chakka varatti itself is a heavy time consuming task. So this is the easier and quicker way to make Chakka Pradhaman (Jackfruit Payasam), this is a simpler version and obviously tastes different than chakka pradhaman with varatti but still so so yummy and tasty with the rich flavor of jackfruit along with coconut milk.
If we want to try Payasam with Jackfruit without having much of hassle, you can try this Chakka Pradhaman without Chakka Varatti | Jackfruit Payasam. My MIL used say that when she was in Nagercoil, my FIL used to get big Jackfruit and my MIL would cut and take out Jackfruit pieces and then the next day, its a great project day for her 🙂 In the morning, after her usual cooking (can’t really escape from that :-)) , she starts with the making of Chakka Varatti. She used to put 2-3 plastic covers on her hands till elbow, because over and over stirring the chakka varatti not only a tedious process but also when we are stirring after adding ghee, the halwa boils and spills that will hurt the hands. It takes a lots of time, especially if we have more jackfruit pulp. But its a worth effort. The halwa will taste dainty. But as most of us have a fast and quick time for these special dishes, I always like to go with Chakka Payasam without Varatti.

Prepare Coconut Milk

We can use 1 full coconut to grind and take the coconut milk. If you are planning to use the fresh coconut, take the grated coconut in a mixer jar. Add 1 cup of warm water and grind it nicely and then squeeze out the coconut milk. This is the first thick milk and keep it aside. Again take the squeezed grated coconut in the mixer and add 1.5 cups of warm water and grind it and again squeeze out to take semi-thick coconut milk. This is the 2nd consistency milk. Again take the squeezed grated coconut in the mixer and add 3 cups of warm water and grind it and squeeze out the thin or very diluted version of coconut milk. This is the 3rd consistency very thin milk. If you are using tinned coconut milk, dilute 1/4 cup of the coconut milk with 3 cups of water. This is very thin coconut milk. Again dilute another 1/4 cup of coconut milk with 1.5 cups water. This is semi-thick milk. Finally keep the rest of the 1/2 cup thick milk as it is aside
