Ponsa gharai(Jackfruit payasam).... a Konkani delight

Today i am here with one more konkani dish and my all time favourite payasam/Godshey withJackfruit ,we call it  " Ponsa Gharai ".Gharai is a payasam prepared using jackfruit bulbs cooked in jaggery and coconut milk.Every season at least once my mom used to prepare this dish.My dad used to drink this in a mug rather than eating with a spoon.

Jackfruit-2cups(cut into pieces)
Jaggery-1cup or to taste
Coconut grated-2cups
Basmathi rice-1tbsp
Cashew nuts for garnishing

  • Soak rice for about 30 mins.After 30 mins grind it along with coconut to smooth paste by adding 3cups of water and keep aside.

    Add caption
  • In a big sauce pan add 4 cups of water add jaggery,few cashenut pieces and jackfruit pieces, cook until jackfruit pieces are soft but not mushy.You should feel the whole pieces.
  • Now add the ground paste and bring to boil.Just one boil is enough.Switch off the gas.
  • Garnish it with Cashew nut and serve hot or cold.
