20 fleshy ripe jackfruit sections
1 grated coconut - (extract first n second milk)
175 gms jaggery (use according to your requirement)
1 1/2 teaspoon cardamom powder
1 1/2 heap teaspoon white flour (optional)

1. Grind the coconut with enough hot water in a mixie and get the first thick milk.
2. Grind again with enough water to get the next batch of milk.
3. All in you shd have at least 6 cups (2 cups thick and 4 cups thin ) of coconut milk.
4. Cut the jackfruit into small square pieces and boil in the second (thin)coconut juice with jaggery.
5. When the fruit becomes soft, pour in the first (thick)coconut milk and the cardamom powder. For a thicker mixture (if desired)dissove the flour in 2 Tblspoon of water and add to the payasam when its still boiling stirring it all the time.
6. Off the fire - payasam can be served hot or cold to your preference. Big smile

NOTE: Boil the jaggery in a about a cup of water, dissolve it completely before strainning it thru a muslin strainer into the payasam. This is to remove any form of sediments in the jaggery.

900  ml coconut milk from a coconut
cup sugar
tsp of salt
A pinch of cardamom powder
1 knotted pandan leaf

Soak the ulunthu and rice for about 2 hours.
Grind them with a little water to a thick paste.
The paste should be a little coarse.
Mix the ground paste, coconut milk and salt.
Put a wok on fire. Pour the mixture with the pandan leaf.
On a slow fire, keep on stirring the mixture
Till it thickens and there is no raw smell of the ulunthu.
Now add the sugar and cardamom powder.
Stir till the sugar is dissolved.
Remove the pandan leaf, and dish out into a bowl.
This is a very good source of protein.
