Jackfruit Kesari

Jackfruit is a seasonal fruit and is better to use them in their season to get its health benefits.
Jackfruit Kesari baath/Sheera is a sweet dish prepared using Jackfruits which I got from my sister.
It is an easy dish and yummy to have it


I have used jackfruits, jaggery (Joni bella), cardamom pods, ghee and saffron.
Jackfruits are loaded with healthy properties. In olden days people and animals used to visit the vast forest and look for jackfruit trees to fill their stomach. No wonder there is a proverb saying Eat jackfruit in an empty stomach and eat mango fruits after food. Eating jackfruits fills your stomach and you will have no worries of any indigestion. And eating mango fruit helps to digest the food you had. People have shown the way to live a healthy life by saying proverbs which are good steps to our healthy life.
Jackfruit trees not only provide fruits as food, the roots of the tree holds water which pour down during the rainy season. It is so sad that the forest is cut down and made bare land for the greedy man. The rain has reduced due to cut down of trees and deforestation  and rain  water is simply runs through the land and gets into seas.
Jackfruits are good source of potassium and have low cholesterol levels.
Let us see The Recipe Now :

Things needed :

Jackfruits : 10 to 15
Rava/Semolina : Medium size : 1 1/2 Cup
Jaggery : 3/4 Cup
Ghee 3/4 Cup
Cardamom Pods : 5 to 6
Boiling Water : 3 Cups
Cashew Nuts and Raisins : 1 Handful
saffron flakes : 5 to 6


Method :


1. Put 2 to 3 Tbs of ghee in a big frying pan and keep it on the fire. Let it melt.
2. Add cashews and raisins and fry. Powder cardamom and keep it aside.

3. Add rava and fry till the raw smell disappear. Cut jackfruits in to small pieces.

5. Once it is thicken add jaggery and stir continuously and slowly.




6. Add saffron flakes and remained ghee. Mix it well and cook on low flame. Add cardamom powder.

Note: 

Cut jackfruit into small pieces. Rava/Semolina should be fried nicely till the raw smell disappear to get good Kesari texture. Adding more ghee is optional. Adding food colour instead of saffron is optional. I have added Joni Jaggery. (Liquid jaggery). You can use store bought jaggery , then powder it and use it. Powdering jaggery helps the jaggery to melt easily and quickly.
Time : 30 to 35 Minutes.

Jack Fruit Rave Rotti

Jack Fruit season is almost over and you need to wait for fresh fruits for next season. 
Just before the season  I got this fruit from my sister. She lives in Kadiyali./Udupi. The fruits are very tasty and we do long for this jack fruits to have at least once a year.


Viji's house the jack trees did not bare many fruits, because This year the fruits just fell off before it got ripening. Some thing must have happened since there was no rain until July end and the trees must have suffered  of no rain. It did not bare many fruits and the ones started to grow it fell off and rotten. A few were there to eat. So she gave us one Jack Fruit and it took long time to ripe. Any ways we were lucky to have.
Jack fruit rotti is very tasty and you can have them for breakfast or dinner.
It is easy, quick and healthy too. 
I have used medium size rave/rava/semolina, very little coconut, jack fruits and salt. The sweetness in the fruit adds the sweet. Extra sweet is not used here.
Let us see the recipe now :

Things Needed :

Jack fruits : 1 Bowl (15 to 20 fruits).
Medium size Rava/Semolina/Sooji : 2 Cups
Coconut : 3 to 4 Tbs
Salt : To taste.
Oil : 3 to 4 Tbs

Method :

1. Cut jack fruit into small pieces.


2. Grate coconut and grind it with jack fruit pieces. Do not add any water while grinding.
3. Take it out from the mixi jar to a bowl.
4. Add salt and mix 2 cups of medium size rava.
