Jackfruit cookies ring


Jackfruit cookies ring
( from wikipedia )
Jackfruit is commonly used in South and Southeast Asian cuisines.[16] It can be eaten unripe (young) when cooked, or ripe uncooked.[16] The seeds may be boiled or baked like beans. The leaves are used as a wrapping for steamed idlis.

[edit]Young fruit

The young fruit is called Polos in Sri Lanka. It is a dish with spices to replace meat curries in Sri Lankan cuisine. The skin of unripe (young) jack fruit must be pared first and discarded and then the whole fruit can be chopped into edible portions and cooked to be eaten. The raw young fruit is not edible.[16] Young jackfruit has a mild flavour and distinctive poultry like texture. The cuisines of IndiaNepalBangladesh,Sri LankaIndonesiaCambodia, and Vietnam use cooked young jackfruit.[16] In Indonesia, young jackfruit is cooked with coconut milk as gudeg. In many cultures, jackfruit is boiled and used in curries as a staple food[17]

In the Philippines it is cooked with coconut milk (Ginataang langka)

[edit]Ripe fruit

Ripe jackfruit is naturally sweet with subtle flavouring. It can be used to make a variety of dishes including custards[18] , cakes, halo-halo and more. Ripe jackruit arils are sometimes seeded, fried and sold as jackfruit chips.
