Here I am sharing the recipe for chakkayappam which is a popular snack in Kerala when jackfruits are in season.This is usually made in a cone shape (known as kumbilappam) but to make it easy I tried pressing them on the vazhanayila. You can also steam them after flattening them on banana leaves.
- Ripe jackfruit paste – 2 cup, Chop the jackfruit pieces and grind to a fine paste in a mixer
- Rice flour – 1 1/4 cup
- Jaggery – Around 75 gm, grated
- Fresh grated coconut – 1 cup
- Cardamom – 3-4 powdered
- Cumin seeds – 1.5 tsp
- Dry ginger(chukku) – 2 inch powdered
- Vazhanayila – 12 – 15
1. Mix all the ingredients except vazhanayila with your hands. If the dough is watery add more rice flour. Make small balls out of it and flatten them on one end of the vazhanayila with your fingers. Fold it and again flatten some dough in the second fold. Close it and steam cook them for around 20 – 25 mts.

tried this and came good
Thanks again for your lovely words 🙂
wow! chakkayada ugran ayirikanutto 🙂
chakka ada and chakkayappam are different. in chakka ada u dont mix chakka with the dough. u just keep the chakka,coconut and sugar mixture as a filling inside a normal ada.
I hope im not wrong 😀
You are so right, Neeraj..I have corrected it..Thanks a lot for pointing out the mistake 🙂
