Recently the Jackfruit was discovered here in the western world especially because it is replacing meat beautifully for vegans. Good is, that we usually do not have to cut the big fruits apart, we are able to buy them canned or nice and clean packaged, ready to use.
The Jackfruit tree is huge and the fruits can be up to 30kg or even more. We should use the Jackfruit more because it has amazing benefits.
Jackfruit has vitamin C and antioxidants which help to boost our immune system and more as you can read in the article above.

Chakka Pradhaman is a traditional pudding of Kerala, India made with Jackfruit cooked in coconut milk. Chakka Pradhaman we usually make with Chakka Varatti which is a thick jam made with jack fruit and jaggery. I did not have this handy but anyways thought of taking the efforts and making it. I simply love this pudding and sharing the recipe with you all. Recipe here
Raw Jackfruit Curry
Kathal ki sabzi (raw jackfruit curry) is an Indian vegetarian delicacy we cook especially around the month of Holi when jackfruit is in season in north India.
Newbie cooks, be warned – you are up for a challenge if want to make kathal ki sabzi. The prickly, tough-skinned jackfruit requires skill to peel and cut and then takes ages of cooking time. Part of the hurdle is handled these days – supermarkets stock packs of peeled and chopped jackfruit, ready to cook. Go right ahead and pick up one of these packs if you can. If not, I’ll point you to the always-awesome Rak’s Kitchen for illustrated steps to peel a jackfruit. This recipe is for days when you have the leisure to hang out in the kitchen for at least an hour, and the mood to put it a little extra into your cooking. The end result, though, is worth every minute of the time and effort. Recipe here
Fanasachi Bhaji / Phanasachi Bhaji – Maharashtrian Jackfruit Brown Chickpea Coconut Stir fry with coconut, sesame, Indian spices. Vegan Gluten-free Soy-free Side Recipe
Raw and Ripe Jackfruit has been used in Indian cuisine for ages. We use it as a vegetable in some dishes, and as a meat sub in some other dishes. Jackfruit we call Kathal in Hindi, Fanas or Phanas in Marathi, chakka in Malayalam, and many other names in other regional Indian languages. Raw jackfruit is available in whole form or canned form in Asian stores and Indian stores in the US. The big fruit is cumbersome to peel and handle, so I often get canned young green jackfruit packed in brine or water. Ripe Jackfruit and seeds we often use in Indian desserts as they are sweet. Make sure to use young green Jackfruit for savory recipes Recipe here
