Ripe Jackfruit Cake, also known as Pansache Dhonas is a traditional dish that is unique to Goa. 

In konkani, jackfruit means "Panas" while, Dhonas is a baked preparation made from jackfruit or cucumber, rava, grated coconut and jaggery. Normally the "rasal" variety of jackfruit is used as it gives better "mhov" meaning honey.

The cake can be steamed or baked, in Goa, it is usually cooked in an earthen pot directly over the wood fire with heat generated on top by the slow burning coconut husks placed on the lid.
