Jack fruit Kheer.

Jack fruit kheer or payasam

This is a easy method for preparing this jack fruit (palapazam) kheer. This recipe was learnt from my grandma.

1. Jackfruit slices 10 nos.
2. Powdered Jaggery 2 cups.
3. Boiled milk 500 ml.
4. Coconut milk one cup.
5. Cashew 10 gm.
6. Resins few.
7. Ghee two teaspoons.
8. Cardamom powder, a pinch

Method: Cut jack fruit into small pieces and cook till soft. Dissolve jaggery in water and strain and boil along with jackfruit till the raw smell of the jaggery goes. In a low fire add coconut milk and allow it to boil for a second. Remove from fire and add boiled milk and stir well. Fry broken cashew nuts and resins in ghee and add to the kheer. Add cardamom powder and close the vessel. Allow it to cool a little. Serve hot or cold. Try it for Tamil New Years day and enjoy.
