  1. I used canned ripe jackfruit, discard the water in the can and just use the jackfruit.

  3. In a blender, puree the cooked jackfruit to a coarse paste. Keep aside.
  4. In a saucepan, combine jaggery and ¼ cup water, cook till it is completely dissolved in water. Remove from the heat and keep aside.
  5. In another saucepan, heat ½ cup agar-agar strands (1 inch strands) along with ¼ cup water, let the agar-agar melt completely. Make this just before you add to the jackfruit mixture, else it will solidify. If it solidifies, heat it up to melt it.
  6. Roast coconut slices in 1 tbsp ghee till it turns golden brown in color, keep aside.
  7. Microwave instant oats and water or milk for a minute. Or cook it in a saucepan, keep aside.

  16. Grease ramekins with non-stick cooking spray.
  17. Place 3-4 roasted coconut slices on the bottom of the ramekins.
  18. Pour the prepared jackfruit-oats mixture on top of the roasted coconut slices. Let cool down for a few minutes.
