Chakka Puttu Recipe / Jackfruit Puttu

Chakka puttu recipe, how to make jackfruit puttu.

chakka puttu

Chakka puttu or jackfruit puttu is a traditional breakfast from Kerala. Jackfruit or chakka is sliced and layered with puttu podi to make a healthy and filling breakfast.

Sometime back, I shared banana puttu recipe which is also a healthy breakfast, especially for kids.

Ripened jackfruits are sliced finely and mixed with coconut or you can sprinkle coconut over the fruit and topped with puttu podi (do check out this post on how to make easy puttu podi with left over rice).

My son, Cheriyan and Homey loves to have this for breakfast and during jackfruit season, I make this often, you do not need any other curry, the jackfruit will become soft after it is cooked and can mix into the puttu and have it.

I made in my chiratta puttu kutti, you can also make in the long kutti also. If you do not have puttu kutti or puttu maker, try using coconut shell to make DIY puttu kutti.
