Pala pazha paniyaram – visual recipe

Pala pazham paniyaram (in Tamil language) or Chakka pazha paniyaram as known in Malayalam language is a traditional, regional delicacy made from ripened jack fruit.Β  Let’s see how this dish is made in our step by step visual method.


  • Jackfruit (ripe) – 25-30 pieces
  • Jaggery (shredded) – 1 and 1/2 cups
  • Rice flour – 1 cup
  • Coconut (shredded)
  • Sugar

Step 1: Take ripened jack fruit pieces, clean them and cut into pieces.

Step 2: Shred the Jaggery.

Step 3: Grind together both the Jack fruit pieces and the shredded jaggery into fine paste.

Step 4: Mix rice flourΒ  into the jack fruit – jaggery paste and set aside for 10 minutes into idly batter consistency. Check the taste, if you need more sweet, add shredded jaggery and mix well. Do note, we will be adding sugar also in the later stage.

Step 5: Mix the ingredients together into a fine batter. Paniyaram batter is ready.

Step 6: Clean plantain leaves and cut into pieces like in picture below.

Step 7: Flatten the batter onto the leaves like show below.

Step 8: Spread shredded coconut over the flattened batter.

Step 9: Sprinkle sugarΒ  as per your taste.

Step 10: Fold the leaf.

Step 11: Now, you have to steam the preparation. In the picture, I have used a traditional idly cooker for steaming purpose.

Step 12: Jack fruit paniyaram getting steam cooked.

Step 13: Once you are assured it is cooked properly, remove them from the container.

    I like cooking once in a while.(Not every-day :P) And There are many instances when I read a recipe in a book/site and try to make it. Some times I succeed and MOST OF THE TIMES it turns out to be a disaster. The ones that I see in a video/show are mostly those recipes where I have succeeded.

    P.S. : I tried that Mango dish that I read here last time. And I messed it all up- the mangoes, the coconut and even the pan that I used to make it. *sigh* Please don’t laugh! πŸ™

      When we just read a recipe, it is not at times very clear. That’s why here we made a conscious effort that all our recipes should be visual recipes πŸ™‚

      P.S > How did you manage to make that mango dish a disaster? I thought its a simple recipe πŸ˜€ I told mom your attempt she is smiling and said you could try it with ready made coconut milk instead to make the process more simpler πŸ˜€

      P.S.S> A good cook evolves after many “disaster” attempts in the kitchen, so never give up πŸ™‚
