Chakkakuru Milk Shake | Jackfruit Seeds Shake ~ Step by Step Pics

The star of the lock down period was 'jackfruit' in Kerala as people were locked at home and it was jackfruit in season. So people used all parts of the jackfruit in this lock down period. There were lot of trolls associated with jackfruit. They even made slippers with the outer skin of jackfruit as troll. There were many recipes that were made using ripe and raw jackfruits. I even saw recipes using tender jackfruit leaves to make stir fry though I didn't try it. Many made good use of the seeds as well and chakkakuru shake or jackfruit seeds shake was a big hit among all. This was the biggest trend this jackfruit season which spread like wild fire. I have always tried a few of my cherished recipes with jackfruit seeds like chakkakuru mezhukuparetti (loved by all here 😉), chakkakuru manga curry, chakkakuru cheera thoran. Though I tried the shake very late this season due to lock down but am happy that I tried and its really delicious. Tastes like drinking a milk powder drink and there is no obvious taste of chakkakuru or jackfruit seeds. The thickness and consistency of the shake can be altered as per the number of jackfruit seeds used. The jackfruit seeds are cleaned and cooked in  a pressure cooker till done. Chilled milk is added to the cooked jackfruit seeds and ground till smooth paste along with sugar. You can always add a pinch of cardamom powder to flavor this up and enjoy !!

jackfruit seeds / chakkakuru 12-15
milk 1/2 liter
sugar 2 tbsp
cardamom powder a pinch

  • Peel the white skin of jackfruit seeds and scrape the brown portion sparingly( you can even use without scraping the brown portion as its considered very healthy). Add this to a cooker with enough water to boil. Cook the seeds for 3 whistles, wait till pressure is released.

  • Remove the cooked seeds and add 1/2 cup milk to this. Grind the seeds until smooth. Add in sugar and grind till it’s dissolved.
  • Add more chilled milk, mix and taste test for sweetness. Serve chilled.

* If you need a more thicker shake then use more seeds.
* Add a pinch of cardamom flavor if you love.
* You can even use room temperature milk to make the shake if you prefer that way.
