Jackfruit has lot of health benefits it has antioxidant properties, fights against cancer, contains protein, calcium, iron etc..

I made the TENDER JACKFRUIT CUTLET this time.



  1. 2 cup steamed and thinly chopped tender jackfruit
  2. 2 medium cooked potatoes mashed
  3. 1 onion finely chopped
  4. 3 green chillies thinly chopped
  5. 2 spring curry leaves chopped
  6. 3/4 tbsp ginger garlic paste
  7. 1/2 TSP red chili powder
  8. 1/2 or 1 TSP pepper powder
  9. 1 TSP all spice powder
  10. 1/2 TSP turmeric powder
  11. Salt to taste
  12. Oil for frying


  1. 2 egg
  2. 1/2 cup bread crumbs


  • Cut out the outer layer of the tender jackfruit then chop the flesh and steam it in a steamer for five to ten minutes. When it is cooked halfway transfer it from the cook top and allow to cool. Then chop thinly and keep aside.
  • Heat 2 table spoon oil then add onion, curry leaves, chilies one by one and saute for a while .Add ginger garlic paste and powdered ingredients in it and stir for one minute then add the tender jackfruit and mashed potatoes.
  • Then combine the ingredients very well if it needs more salt add it and remove it from the cook top.
  • After it is cooled make into desired size.
  • Dip the cutlet in the beaten egg and roll it out in the bread crumbs.
  • Fry the cutlets in the hot oil and when the colour becomes golden brown remove it from the oil. Enjoy.

      Diane, We can use tender jackfruit as a substitute of meat !! When it ripens it has a pleasent smell !! it’s inside is also a little sticky we should remove it with piece of cotton or cloth and remove the sticky part from the fingers with oil !! It grows in India and warm places !! If you see it again please try it out.. we can make plenty of dishes !!
