Chakka / Jack fruit Ada


Jack fruit bulbs - 9 nos
Roasted rice flour - 2 cups
Jaggery - 1 cup (medium sweet.If you want,can add more)
Water to melt Jaggery - 1/2 cup
Grated coconut - 1 cup
Cardamom powder - 1 tsp
Sugar - 1/4 cup (use either sugar or Jaggery powder)
Banana Leaves - 5 (you may use aluminium foil/parchment paper as well)


Deseed and Chop the ripe jackfruit bulbs into small pieces. Grind this in a mixer without water and make puree. Simultaneously melt the jaggery in another pan with little water.
In a bowl, mix pureed jack fruit, rice flour and hot jaggery syrup. Mix well with hand to make a  dough. if the dough is too tight add more water or if too loose add more rice flour.

Mix grated coconut, cardamom Powder, sugar and keep aside. Take cleaned banana leaves one by one and keep a ball of dough into it. Spread the dough with the palm or fingers. Making the hands wet with water makes this spreading easier. keep a spoon of grated coconut and sugar on the center of the flattened dough. Fold and press the leaf horizontally with your hands. Repeat this with the whole dough.
Now shift this to a steamer and close the lid. Steam it for 20-25 minutes in medium heat.
Peel off the leaf once the adai have cooled down. cut into strips and enjoy.....
