Jack fruit being a favorite fruit for me and my hubby, we just grabbed a bag of it never minding about the cost.. Of course it was way too costly.. But still the sweetness and smell of the ripe jack fruits were real yum!! In India, jack fruit is nothing big, we can find it anywhere anytime.. And I remember those dishes which my mom make without wasting even those jack fruit seeds ( know as pala kottai in Tamil).
I made the same pala kottai soy chunks fry, but added few potatoes just because I didn't have enough seeds.. :D Still it tasted good. I am sending this to Best out of waste event at Nithu's Kitchen.
