What is it?

As like other curries made out of different vegetables, this easy jackfruit curry recipe is made out of seasonal tender jackfruit thats grows in tropical regions mainly in India, Burma, Malaysia,  Thailand and few other Asian & Latin countries. The usage is seasonal and have a great admire to try different recipes when its. available. When I say jackfruit curry don’t think of curry made from ripe jackfruit, it’s a tender jack (raw fruit). Though the look of outer skin of fruit has green spiky thorns, doesn’t appeal to eat or even for first timers have doubt of consumption, when it is opened the light yellowish colored fruit is sweet in taste.

Just to be aware of when making this jackfruit curry the jack should be tender or raw fruit. The curry will not be good when its ripen as the sweetness and spiciness from masala will not balance good. There are other variations that can be made from this fruit. The seed inside from every fruit is edible and similar jackfruit seed curry can be made using same masala. I have marked this recipe as medium difficulty not for cooking but cleaning and cubing the fruit.

Easy Jackfruit Curry

What it takes like?

A mild spicy & aroma of coconut with tenderness of jackfruit tissues.

Taste can greatly differ with the kind of rawness. If it is ripe the taste of sweetness is obvious but tender jack after cooking tastes like pulled pork if ever one has tasted pulled pork. As curry is infused with jackfruit, you can feel the juiciness of soft tissues of the fruit. I would call this easy jackfruit curry recipe is not just for vegan lovers but for meat lovers as well. It will be well understood once you get to know the taste of this dish. Personally I would call this recipe equivalent to mutton curry. For me it is unstoppable from eating and I always cook more for next meal. The level of spiciness is up to one’s preference by altering the chilies. I have added shredded coconut that elevates the taste of it but again if you are not a coconut person, just drop from your shopping list.

Goes well with?

Rice, Chapati, Idili, Dosa, Ghee Rice

It is a perfect combination for breakfast, lunch, dinner dishes and I can kindly say it wouldn’t let you down. It is uncommon in United States to get a fresh jackfruit but in California I have seen some Asian stores do carry ripen fruit and Indian stores have packed frozen jackfruit cubes. Though I’m not big fan of processed or frozen foods, even this seasonal frozen fruit pulls me into the store to get it. During busy days, I make it in bulk so I get started with breakfast for dosa, idili to lunch with rice to dinner for chapati and I don’t get bored of eating the same curry.

Notes:

  1. Before handling the jackfruit, grease both of your palms with some oil or use cloves.
  2. Grease the knife too with oil. Because while cutting the jackfruit, it sheds milk like thing which is so sticky and it leaves stains as well.
  3. Then cut the jackfruit into half and also remove the outer green skin part and centre stalk thick part.
  4. Chop into small cube sized pieces. Immerse the chopped veggies into the buttermilk with a bowl of water(you can also use the drained water we washed the rice) and soak for sometime. In this case, we can avoid the stickiness. Strain and squeeze out the water and keep aside.
