Chakka Puttu (Jackfruit Rice Cake)


1) Rice flour/Puttu podi - 1 cup

2) Grated Coconut - ½ cup

3) Jack-fruit flesh ( Use Varikka chakka chula)- 10 pieces

4) salt – 2-3 pinch

5) Water – As required


Cut the jack fruit into small bits and keep aside.

Sprinkle water into the rice flour little by little and mix well until it become wet (without forming any lumps) and finally add the grated coconut also in to this mix and keep aside.

Take a Puttu steamer, and then add 1 tablespoon of scraped coconut followed by jack fruit and rice flour then repeat the same step till you reach the top of the cylindrical shape.

Then fill the puttu pot half the way with water and set to heat. When steam starts coming up, lower the flame and cook again for 2- 3 mints. Use a skewer / chopstick to push out the puttu from the steamer to a serving dish.
