The jackfruit season in Kerala is usually during the month of April.  Jack fruit is one of the seasonal products in Kerala and it is available in different varieties. The fruit is very sweet and tasty. Apart from its delightful taste, it is also rich in important nutrient like vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, potassium, iron, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, magnesium and many other nutrients.

Chakka Ada (ചക്ക അട) is made with the sweet bits of Jack fruit bulbs incorporated with rice flour and jaggery, the wet dough wrapped and rolled carefully in bay leaves.  Chakka ada is  a seasonal snack, but if you can store the jackfruit as chakka varattiyathu you can make the chakka ada at any time.

Jack fruit ( chakka)  Ada is my all time favorite. You will also love this snack.
