step by step pics of making the chakka varatti payasam:

firstly, before even you switch on the stove, add jackfruit preserve or chakka varattiyathu. Along with it, add jaggery and thin coconut milk(2nd extract). usually, jackfruit preserve is made with jaggery. so based on its sweetness adjust the jaggery level.

mix well to break all the lumps and make it a smooth silky textured payasam. at this stage, switch on the stove and cook till it boils.

since the jackfruit preserve is already cooked well. we need not cook for longer. just boil for 2-3 minutes until jaggery melts and blends with preserve and coconut milk. add ghee a tsp, cardamom powder and mix well.

now is the important step. switch off the stove before adding the first extract. the heat in the payasam is good enough for the coconut milk to blend along with the payasam. so need not cook after adding thick coconut milk. mix well after adding thick coconut milk.
