Jack fruit kheer
Jack fruit kheer is also called Jack fruit payasam or pala pazha payasam .It is one of the "must to be served" desserts in a keralite wedding.In USA we cannot get fresh jack fruit, so instead i have used a can of jack fruit. I discard the preservative liquid.
Jack fruit - 10 pieces (1 can)
green gram - 1 cup
jaggery (crushed)- 1 cup
cardamom - 3
ghee - 1 tbsp
raisin - 10
cashew nut - 10
Make puree out of 6 pieces of jack fruit.
Chop the other 4 pieces and keep aside.
Pressure cook the green gram for 3 whistles and mash it.
Heat a vessel with 2 cups of water and add jaggery.
After the jaggery gets dissolved, distill the clear jaggery solution and discard the sandy left over .
Add the chopped jack fruit pieces to the jaggery solution and cook it , till it becomes soft.
Now add the jack fruit puree and the mashed green gram.
Let it boil for 3 minutes.
Crush the cardamom and add it to the kheer.
Heat a frying pan with 1 tbsp ghee.
Roast the cashews,raisins to golden brown and pour it into the kheer.
Heat for 2 minutes and switch off the stove.
Serve hot or cold as dessert.
