Ripe Jackfruits pieces made into puree
about 1 cup

cardamom or ¼ teaspoon cardamom powder
Peanut oil: for frying
Grind ripe jack fruit into a fine puree without any water and set aside.
Melt Jaggery with ¼ cup of water and sieve with a strainer, to remove impurities if any are present.
If you want you can fry the coconut pieces into ghee and add to the rest of ingredients, I skipped that part.
In a bowl add jack fruit puree, melted and strained jaggery,
rice flour, coconut pieces, ghee, baking soda, crushed cardamom
and water to make a thick pancake batter. Keep it aside for 30 minutes
Heat oil in appakara (similar to Aebleskiver Pan and when it ready (around 365F)
add batter to the mold.
As one side ready (after 3 minutes) turn and cook the other side also (4 minutes). Remove it from the appakara when a skewer comes out clean. Repeat the process until the entire batter is finished.
