Jack fruit - Jaggery Kesari

Jack fruit is a seasonal fruit and we do make use of it and prepare varieties of Jack fruit dishes.
Here is a Jack fruit - Jaggery Kesari Baath and I am sure every one should love to have it.


Straight to the recipe since we all know about kesari baath, done using rava, sugar, ghee and cardamom.
Here I have used Medium size rava, instead of sugar I have used organic jaggery and jack fruit is added to the Kesari just like pineapple.
Try and enjoy and is not too late because jack fruits are still available in the market every where.
Let us see the recipe now :

Things needed :

Rave/Rava /Semolina  : Medium sized : 1 Cup
Jaggery : 3/4 Cup
Jack fruits : 10 to 12 fruits
Ghee : 1/2 Cup or little more ( I am fond of ghee).
Cardamom : 4 to 5 Pods
Cashews and Raisins : 1 Handful
Boiling water : 2 Cups
Saffron flakes : 4 to 5 rakes

Method :

1.  Powder cardamom and cut jack fruits into small.
2. Keep water for boiling.
3. Keep a pan on the fire and heat. Add 2 tbs of  ghee and fry raisins and cashews till they turn golden brown.

4. Add rava and fry nicely till the husky smell disappear. Add jack fruit pieces and mix it slowly.


5. Add boiling water to it. Mix it well and stir it turns thick.


6. Add jaggery and stir slowly and let the mixture get thick. Add little ghee and saffron rakes.

 7. Add powdered cardamom and mix it well. Add remaining ghee and mix it well.


 8. Shift the done Jack Fruit - Jaggery Kesari to a serving bowl and serve.

 Note : 

Cut jack fruits into very small pieces so that it cooks faster and soft. Adding more ghee is optional.
I have used organic juicy jaggery. You can powder jaggery if you are using normal jaggery which is available in the market.
Time : 30 Minutes.
Serves : 4 to 5.
