2. In a thickbottomed pan, take 3tbsp ghee and when ghee is sufficiantly hot, add jackfruit pieces.

3. Keep stirring the jackfruitpieces till it becomes mushy. At this stage jackfruit will no longer stick to the pan as it was doing in the begining.

4. Add grated coconut, and sugar. Bring it to boil. Keep stirring till all the sugar dissolves and halwa becomes thick.

5. Remove and serve. You can serve hot or cold halwa. Both of them taste excellent.
