Chakka ( Jack Fruit ) Halwa

Chakka / Jack fruit is a great source of dietary fiber, minerals and vitamins. It contains no saturated fats or cholesterol, which makes it one of healthy fruits to relish. People eat it as it is. Jack fruit halwa is my hubby's favorite. Here the recipe...

Jack fruit- 1 kg
Sugar- 400 gms
Ghee- 100 gms
Cardamom powder- 1 tsp


Remove seeds from jack fruit and blend in a mixie, transfer it into an uruli ( heavy bottomed vessel ). Let it boil and get cooked on a medium heat. When water is absorbed, add sugar. Let it be on medium heat and stir in between.
After it is reduced even more, add cardamom powder and start adding the ghee and keep stirring.
When all the ghee is used up and you get a thick consistency. 
Pour it in a greased tray and allow to set. When it cools you can cut into desired shape and garnish with almond slits.
Store in airtight containers. If you wish to keep it for a longer time, refrigerate.
