Jack fruit Kheer | Palapazha Payasam | Payasam Recipes | Easy South Indian Payasam Recipes | Kheer Recipes

This Jack fruit payasam or Jack fruit kheer is a new dish for me, which I got from here. It was really quick, easy and tastes wonderful. I just loved the taste.  I just used the same recipe, with little change of adding fried cashews, jack fruit and raisins, as I loved the crunchiness of the jack fruit and the cashews. Here we go for the recipe - Jack fruit payasam.


  • Jackfruits (ripe) - 6
  • Milk - 2 cups
  • Coconut Milk - 1/4 cup
  • Grated Coconut - 2 tsp
  • Sugar - 1/4 cup (Increased or decreased as needed)
  • Cardamom - 2 to 3 (crushed)
  • Cashews - 10 to 15
  • Saffron - a pinch


  • Soak cashews for 10 min in warm milk.
  • Cut the jackfruit and cook in little water.
  • Take one jackfruit and cut into small pieces which is used later.
  • Now grind the remaining jackfruit in little milk and make into a smooth paste and keep aside.
  • Now in the same mixie, add the soaked cashews and grated coconut and little milk and grind to smooth paste.
  • Now in a heavy pan, add cashew coconut paste, jackfruit paste, sugar, coconut milk and remaining milk and allow to boil.
  • Meanwhile, fry the 1 tsp cashews and raisins in ghee and transfer to the boiling payasam.
  • Add the cut jackfruit and give a stir. (this step is optional)
  • Add the crushed cardamom and saffron, garnish and serve hot or cold.

But you never said what to do with the one piece of jackfruit that is cut and kept aside!!!!!!!!??????


@Pink Movie, add the jack fruit pieces, to the payasam (kheer) before adding the cardamom and saffron. But this step is purely optional.
