Jackfruit,cut into small pieces -1 cup
Jaggery -1/2 a cup,powdered [or less]

Cardamom-a pinch[optional,I didn't use it.]

Fried cashews-to garnish
1.Grind together jaggery,coconut and cardamom.[Add a little warm water for grinding.]Keep aside.
2.Heat the ghee in a pan and cook the jackfruit pieces in the ghee till soft in medium flame.
3.Put in the ground jaggery-coconut mixture.
4.As the jaggery melts,the payasam will turn watery. Simmer for 10 minutes.
