Jack fruit Preserve

Jack fruit Preserve
Ingredients
5 cups Ripe jackfruit blended in a blender 
1 1/2 cups Jaggery
2 tablespoon  Ghee
1 cup  Water

Method
Pressure cook the jackfruit till soft by adding 1/2 cup of water. Then grind it to a smooth paste in the blender. Take jaggery in another pan and melt it by adding 1/2 cup water.
Heat the jackfruit pulp and jaggery in a thick bottom pan. Allow the mixture to cook on low flame till the liquid  reduces.Stir continuously on a low heat to prevent it from sticking. Keep adding 1 tsp of ghee in between to avoid sticking.Continue the process,until it gets a dark brown colour and it dries up. It takes around 2  or more hours. Allow it to cool, keep it in a dry airtight container. Keep it in the fridge and use it for making desserts...
