  • Jackfruit – 15 pieces
  • Jaggery – ½ cup
  • Water – ½ cup
  • Thin coconut milk – ¼ cup
  • Thick coconut milk – ½ cup
  • Cashew nuts – 10 pieces
  • Coconut chunks – 1 tbsp
  • Ghee – 2 tbsp
  • Cardamom powder – ½ tsp


  • Peel the Jackfruit arils .In a pressure cooker add the jackfruit arils after removing the seed add in little water and pressure cook for 2 whistles. Allow the pressure to release naturally and then open. Wait till it cools down and then add the cooked jackfruit pieces in a blender and make it to a fine puree and set aside.
  • Heat Ghee in a pan add in cashew nuts and coconut chunks and roast till golden brown and set aside.
  • In the same pan add in the jaggery pieces and water, cook in a low flame till the jaggery is completely dissolved. Strain for impurities and continue cooking till it becomes slightly thick. Now add in the ground jackfruit puree and mix well till it is completely dissolved.
  • Keep mixing .Add in cardamom powder.
  • Next add in the thin coconut milk and cook for 5 mins.
  • Next add in the roasted nuts and mix well and finally add in the thick coconut milk and switch off the flame.


  •       Serve as an after meal dessert.
  •  If you feel the kheer is very thin, make a slurry 1 tsp rice flour and 2 tbsp  water and add to thick the kheer.
  •  Prepare it when the jackfruit is in season.
  •  Adjust the sweetness as per your taste.
  •  I used impurities free organic jaggery and hence I dint strain for impurities. It is a must if using normal jaggery.
