jackfruit and tofu curry



Most Asian people know about jackfruit, If its unripe the color is green can be use for vegetables and if ripe the color is yellow can be consumed as a fruit or to add flavor to a variety of dessert.
This time I use canned green jackfruit/unripe to make a vegan curry with tofu cooked in coconut milk with curry seasoning to serves with steamed white rice.
Canned jackfruit can be found in Asian / Oriental market in vegetable isle
I made similar dish before jackfruit sweet stew with chicken/gudeg this time I made vegan version with tofu, And I also made jackfruit muffins use ripe jackfruit for taste.

- 2 cubes vegetable bouillon 
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 1/2 tbsp curry powder
- salt to taste
- 1 tbsp palm sugar
- 1 teaspoon tamarind juice
