Jack fruit jam ( chakka varratti)

This post is going to be the first of its kind in my blog, solely because iam going to share the recipe of making jackfruit jam.

Now, this jam is my favorite and I always thought that it is some kind of an herculean task  to make it. Only when I tried it myself I understood its not at all difficult . Ofcourse I made a very small batch but taste was just too yumm! 

Now, as to why am I sharing this here more so when this blog is more about homes and green spaces. Well after it was made , I bottled it and kept it on my shelf . That scene warmed me up. Would you like to see how it added to the decor quotient? Scroll down to the bottom. But yes before that,  read the recipe.

Remove all the flesh from the jackfruit. Pressure cook them for about 2 whistles.  Mash it well. You can make a pulp of the jackfruit in the mixer. Now take equal and a little more quantity of powdered jaggery than the jackfruit . Mix and cook them well in a heavy bottomed pan. Add about 2 tbsp ghee  and cook till the mixture leaves the sides and the required consistency is achieved. Well, there you have your jam ready!

I used about 10 to 15 numbers of jackfruit flesh here. Accordingly you can adjust the amount of ghee. Isn't this an easy one?

So this was the image, I was referring to! 

Does it do justice to the decor part of the blog? Hope so! 😉

A bunch of Singapore daisies and home decor

Hello June,

June for me is a month of abundance, what with rains in most part of our country! Rains ensure that new leaf unfurl, flowers dance in vibrant colour and there is a general 'joie de vivre' everywhere. 

The same for me is these pretty bunch of yellow Singapore daisies! It brings joy and hope. Recently, got this from our apartment garden, as it was being pruned. I rushed down to grab a few. 

On different days, they occupied different corners. Just changed the water everyday and they are sitting pretty inside a votive. Yes, no elaborate flower- vase arrangement.  Just a bunch inside water and notice how they transform the entire feel and look of the place.

Sharing images, tell me did you fall in love with them as much as I did?
