Boiled Jackfruit Seeds

So saved jackfruit seeds after eating jackfruit. Removed white skin part.

Just bang something on it and easy to remove white skin.

Boiled in boiling water. Cover the pot and tell Alexa to remind you in 10 mins.

You can sprinkle salt , pepper etc on it but just ate plain.

Strain , let it cool down for a while and try it.

It tasted fine, not much taste and more like chestnut/potatoes probably.

Why would you try it then ? Well, you may like it. It’s good to have open mind and try things . Sometimes as I try different things , they lead me to different things. Sometimes some issues get fixed accidentally and sometimes they cause issues .

If nothing else it all makes life fun . isn’t it ?


Raw Jackfruit – Vegetarian’s Chicken Masala

On recent chardham trip, @ Badarinath hotel ,kathal/Jackfruit masala was on buffet and we all just ate that and ignored rest of the buffet items. Since then I wanted to make it. I had tried it years before using canned jackfruit but I didn’t like taste of canned. This time I found in frozen section at Indian store . Some places it’s available fresh too if you are willing to do all the work to cut it.

It looks like chicken , isn’t it ? Since it’s a fruit , it will have little protein.

Followed nishmadhurika ‘s recipe from YouTube. It’s very simple and easy to make it.

  • Cool raw jackfruit for 1 whistle .
  • Heat oil, crack cumin seeds . Add ginger , garlic , green chili paste. Sauté and add turmeric powder , red chili powder, coriander powder , salt.
  • Add chopped tomatoes. Use generous amt of tomatoes to make it taste good.
  • Cook tomatoes few minutes only leaving little crunch.
  • Add boiled jackfruit, adjust salt. Mix, mash some . Add garam masala, Amchoor powder.
  • Garnish with cilantro.
  • Yum ! Next I will make biryani.
  • Enjoy!
