Jack Fruit Buns/Pooris

Jack fruit buns/pooris are yummy and it is an easy dish to prepare and very good for breakfast/snack with a cup of coffee.

I have used jack fruits, organic jaggery and wheat flour.
Buns are famous in South Canara and Malenadu . They are fried pooris, prepared using  Maida/All purpose flour, banana and sugar. We can easily prepare many varieties of Buns using different fruits.
I have prepared pineapple buns and wheat and jaggery buns etc.
Here I have tried wheat flour with jack fruit added and jaggery instead of sugar. No need to add any oil while preparing the dough. It does not take much of oil.
Our foodie blog's, one of the Admini, Madhura Pradeep had tried jack fruit buns and that encouraged me to prepare these Jack Fruit Buns/ Jack Pooris. She has used sugar and instead of sugar I have used jaggery. The Jack Buns turned as yummy as usual banana buns which we prepare very often.
Jack fruit is a seasonal fruit and it is just about to complete its season for this year.  I had some jack fruits from  my sister's home and jack fruit was just enough to prepare these pooris. (The remaining fruits were eaten before preparing the buns :) .
Let us see the recipe now:

Things Needed :

Jack Fruits : 10 to 15
Jaggery : 1 to 2 Tablespoons
Wheat flour : 2 Cups
Salt :  A little
Oil : 1 Cup ( To fry )

Method :

1. Remove jack seeds from fruits and grind it with out water. Put it in a bowl.

2. Add jaggery and mix it well.

3. Add wheat flour and little salt. Mix it well and prepare poori dough.
4. Kneed the dough well and divide them into small lemon size balls.

5. Turn them as round shaped balls. Grease each ball shaped dough with little oil.
6. Roll them as small poori. Arrange them in a plate/tray.

7. Keep oil for frying and let it heat.
8. Drop a poori slowly in hot oil and fry on both sides till they turn slightly brown.

  Remove it from oil and put it on a kitchen tissue. Let all the extra oil absorb by kitchen tissue.

9. Repeat the same and fry all the pooris.

10 Serve with chutney or you can just eat as they are.

Note :

Adding sugar instead of jaggery is optional. You can use normal jaggery instead of organic jaggery.
Powder jaggery and heat it with very little water. Let it boil and turn as liquid completely. Sieve it in a strainer and used it. You can add a teaspoon of ghee to the dough while preparing the dough. (optional). I did not. No need to rest the dough. It might absorb oil if you allow to rest the dough. Do not add any water while grinding fruits. Adjust the jack fruit mixture with wheat flour. Mix it with little quantity and check . (Divide both jack fruit ground mixture and wheat flour and add little by little while preparing the dough).
Time : 20 Minutes.
Serves : 20 to 25 pooris. (According to size).
