Jack fruit season is almost over, you need to wait for one more year for the jack fruit season. May be the last Jack fruit I am using it here to prepare Jack fruit Guli Appa/ Paddu/ Paniyaram.

It is always better to have fruits and vegetables during their seasons. They are filled with vitamins and minerals during the seasons they are naturally grown.

There is a proverb in Kannada language. ಹಸಿವಾದಾಗ ಹಲಸಿನ ಹಣ್ಣು ತಿನ್ನು ಹಾಗೆಯೇ ಹೊಟ್ಟೆ ತುಂಬಿದಾಗ ಮಾವಿನ ಹಣ್ಣು. It means when you are hungry that we should eat Jack Fruits and when we are full, we should eat Mango. Jack fruits fill the stomach and is good for getting your energy back. And when you are full One should eat mango that helps the food to digest..
