Jackfruit(Chakka) Ada

Comments : 2 Posted in : Breakfast, Malabar cuisine, Sweet snack on by : superchef Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Jack fruit( chakka) Ada is my all time favorite. In Kerala, you get to have chakka ada, chakka varattiyathu,chakka chips during summer(March to May).When you live in a temperate zone where few arils of Jack fruit cost you $5….then you tend to rely on canned Jack fruit imported from Thailand or Philippines. I used the frozen banana leaf from Philippines for this recipe. Chakka ada takes me back to those nostalgic memories of my school summer vacations.

    Wonderful recipe! I personally tend to use brown sugar instead of jaggery due to its scarcity here but it work out well!
