Jackfruit is available in summer season especially in Kerala. Jackfruit is very big fruit, looking beautiful and very tasty to use. You can cultivate in your house without any effort and care. We are using both raw and ripe jackfruit to make different tasty dishes. Stir fry, aviyal, erriserry, chips and cutlet are the main dishes of raw jack fruit. I would like to share the recipe of mashed jackfruit through this article.
Mashed Jack fruit or chakka vevichathu is one of the special and famous traditional dish in Kerala. Mainly it is very natural and homemade dish. We can use it as breakfast, dinner and evening time special food. It is very tasty to use at any time. We should have some patients to cook this dish because it will take more time to make this but it is very tasty dish. In my home, we are usually preparing this dish in summer season and everyone in my family like this very much. We can make a lot of variety and tasty dishes by jack fruit. Keralites can't avoid this food because it is their traditional special dish. It is an excellent combination with beef curry, chicken curry and fish curry and also it is better combination with pickle and chutney.
