It’s Simply Jackfruit, This Time

I have done a few things with jackfruit in the previous seasons. Like making chakka unda (jackfruit balls) and chakka chips (jackfruit chips). In fact some of the chakka undas are still there in our Kochi home.

Some nine full sized jackfruits were worked on in one season.

Now that we’re stuck in Bangalore, it’s not easy to work on full jackfruit without some of the specialty tools. I must also admit that it’s highly priced here while the jackfruits came free from siblings while in Kochi.

So the only option is to get the product, fresh and ready to eat. I got some good ones from a small vendor. I asked for fruits worth 100 rupees. Of course, no bargaining with small vendors, especially now.

Some whole sellers purchased jackfruits from my brother at ₹10 per fruit. Each full fruit has about 30 fleshy ones like in the picture. Converted, that’s about 20 times the price for these ones I bought.

It’s uniquely tasty and now a health food. But the thrill is in making chakka undas. Maybe next season!

Chakka Unda. Repost from April 2018.

Here’s a repost of my April 2018 post when I made one of the most traditional and alluring delicacy ‘Chakka Unda’ the jackfruit balls. Some of them are still remaining in Kochi house and I miss eating them with coconut slices.

Moreover I have had plans of making new stock of chakka undas and jackfruit chips. Just wonder if the season will be over by the time I get back from Bangalore where I am locked down.

Here’s the 2018 post.
