Brined jackfruit vada.
What does that even mean? I know it sounds strange. If you are wondering what the hell this brined jackfruit is, then you are a new visitor to this site or you have missed some posts of June month. A couple of months back I had written about brined jackfruit flatbread which is very unique and specific to the people of coastal Karnataka. Today it has taken a sort of fritter form like deep fried vada.
To give a quick recap of that post, brined jackfruit is nothing but raw jackfruit pods in salt. When the jackfruits are in season well grown raw jackfruit pods are stored in a jar with lots of salt. Being in salt these pods extend their shelf life for a year and you can cook them in many ways to relish the fruit when it’s not in season. Sounds absolutely awesome isn’t it??
These brined jackfruit vadas are hitting your eyeballs today just because of my Mom. Yes, every year she preserves a jar full of jackfruit pods for the sake of my blog recipes. She never forgets my quest for genuine recipes and keeps the ingredients ready before hand. Unless her behind the scene contribution, this post of mine would never have come up so soon. I cannot THANK YOU enough MOM.
This fritter, brined jackfruit vada is minimal in terms of ingredients but awesomely delicious with unique flavor of it’s own. It made last weekend’s food mania a super hit at my home and you too surely going to love this.
