Jackfruit is one fruit which can be enjoyed in different ways.
I love them as is when it’s ripe. The raw jackfruit is also used in curries and in preparation of various delicacies.
Today I made some jackfruit fritters which turned out awesome. The colour, the texture and taste was perfect.
We call it Mulik in konkani.
The whole house was filled with the sweet aroma as I was frying the Muliks.
Semolina/Suji rava – 1 cup
Grated coconut – 1 cup
jack fruit sliced – 1 cup
Jaggery – 2 table spoons
Salt – as per taste
Grind the Jackfruit segments , jaggery and grated coconut to paste.
Not coarse nor smooth.
Then mix Suji rava and salt.
Transfer the bowl to the refrigerator.
In about half an hour make small balls and fry until golden in colour.
You may increase the quantity of the jaggery based on sweetness of the jackfruit .
Heat oil for frying the Muliks or fritters.
Keep the heat on medium flame and fry three to four balls at a time until golden brown.
Enjoy them hot or at room temperature.
