Chakka Puttu / Puttu with Ripe Jackfruit Paste

I have previously posted a chakka puttu recipe where I used chopped jackfruit pieces as layering. This is a different variation where I used jackfruit paste….


1 1/2 cup puttu podi / rice flour
12 chakka / ripe jackfruit pieces, chopped
1/2 cup grated coconut (or as required)


  1. In a blender, add jackfruit pieces and grind well to a smooth paste without adding water.
  2. Add the puttu podi and salt in a bowl and add jackfruit paste little by little and mix well with hand without any lumps till it becomes moist. Keep it covered for 10 minutes.
  3. Take a puttu maker and layer it with grated coconut first, then the puttupodi and then the grated coconut again. Repeat the process till the puttu maker is filled.
  4. Fill pressure cooker/ puttu kudam with 3-4 cups of water and bring to a boil.
  5. Place the puttu maker on top of it and steam cook for 5-7 minutes or until the steam starts coming out from the top of puttu maker.
  6. Remove it to a plate and serve hot…
  • Can add finely chopped jackfruit pieces along with coconut for layering…
  • The method to check the consistency of puttu podi – When we hold it should have shape and when we break it must be easily breakable.
