We were visiting my brother and he gave me my first jackfruit of the season.
Three years back, I worked on 9 of them making delicacies such as chakka undas (jackfruit balls), chakka chips, chakka ada etc.
The chakka undas, kept in the refrigerator are still so good and I get to have the exclusive delight of eating them with fresh coconut slices.
This one will be ripe in a day or two and I am going to enjoy it as such, the delicious chakka pazham.
I must admit that not everyone is fond of jackfruits. My wife for example and a close friend.
It’s a health food now, controlling blood sugar and delicacies using even the seeds are much sought after.
One of the things I should do now is to plant a few trees so that I can have my own jackfruits in a couple of years.
