Jackfruit is one of the biggest fruit and it is very famous fruit in everywhere. You can prepare a lot of variety and tasty dishes by using raw and ripe jackfruit. It has been cultivated in Kerala so it became favourite fruit for them so they will wait for summer season because Jackfruit is available in summer season. Jack fruit and its seeds have a lot of health benefits. Jackfruit payasam, jackfruit Aviyal, milk shake, jackfruit sambar, jackfruit chips and jackfruit juice are the common and popular dishes for everyone. It was one of the favourite fruit long years ago and every house will have mashes jack fruit in the evening. Now a day also it is following because it is that much tasty and healthy. Here, I am prepared another tasty dish that is called as Jackfruit Erissery. It is very familiar to Keralites but it is not that much popular in other states and countries because it is a traditional dish in Kerala. I was getting a special and variety feelings when I have it. It is very simple and easy recipe. Onam is very famous celebration in Kerala, we are making different dishes by a lot of vegetables, we will get a variety taste at that time and I am getting that types of taste and feelings when I have this jackfruit Erissery. I will remember onam if I have it so I feel very happy at that time. Usually I was preparing jackfruit masala curry in my house but I felt that I need to get a variety taste from jackfruit. One day my aunt came to my house and she told me about this curry. I followed the method what she said and it was really tasty. So I am making this dish when I get jack fruits. My favourite combination with this curry is hot rice and curd curry. It is super and tasty. It has the taste of both cumin seeds and coconut paste. Its taste is increasing if we use coconut fry. It has very attractive smell and taste. It helps to get hungry very easily. I think a very less people know about this recipe so that it would be very helpful to everyone. Let us enjoy a new and tasty jackfruit dish.
