Jam Biscuits

I searched for the Jam Biscuits recipes but in vain. Finally I landed to my favorite Rak's Kitchen and tried her's and really turned out good. I don't have the cookie cutter and normally i did it and it tastes really nice. I just followed her recipe since i don't want to take any risk for the first time.

  • Custard Powder - 3/4 cup
  • Corn Flour - 4 tsp
  • Butter - 1/2 cup
  • Powdered Sugar - 1/2 cup
  • Curd - 3 tsp
  • Vanilla Essence - 1 full cap of essence bottle
  • Jam - any kind ( i used pineapple and Strawberry)


  • Beat the butter and powdered sugar untill fluffy.
  • To this, add the flour, custard powder, corn flour and curd and make it to a dough.
  • Spread on a flat bottomed surface and using a rolling pin roll it to a 5 mm thickness. ( i used chappathi roll )

  • Now cut into desired shape and put a hole in the middle.

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.
