Chakka Pradhaman or Jackfruit Payasam

Chakka prathaman is a traditional sweet recipe also known as Payasam which is in the Pudding style and is served in the Dessert Course. It is much in use in the State of Kerala in India.

Chakka Pradhaman or Jackfruit Payasam is a Kerala Dessert often made in their festivals and functions. It is made from chakka varatti. Chakka varatti is nothing but jackfruit jam. I didn’t have jackfruit jam. So I made it with jack fruit.
