For me Jackfruit is one of the most interesting fruits. Not only for the fact it is the largest fruit in the world. But stadiums of the fruits and related uses are very interesting.
- Baby jackfruit curry - Polos
Jackfruit is a fascinating fruit. Not only because of its size, but it is used completely different way in each stage of its ripeness. If it is of a size about 15-20 cm, it is called baby jack (or green jackfruit). It is used as a vegetable and has a sour taste. The curry made of it is called polos and is a bit sour too, but very nicely sour.
- Bandakka curry - Ladies fingers curry
This curry is exceptional firstly as it is nearly not spicy at all and secondly, okra is a slimy vegetable, which some people love, some don't. If you belong to the ones, who love it, you will love this curry too. As Ladies fingers curry is nearly not spicy at all, it is usually combined with more spicy curries like for instance Jackfruit curry.
- Jackfruit "kos" with grated coconut
Jackfruit has several stages of ripeness and depending on the stage is used as a fruit or as a vegetable. In this case it is mature one and will be used as vegetable. In Sinhala it is called kos. Final product will be something like potatoes with curd, just more exotic and vegan version of it. We will use jackfruit seeds too, they taste like cooked or baked chestnuts.
