Lot of excitement is happening right now in my kitchen. When you have queued up lot many yummy food for the blog with pretty good photographs, then you are a super happy person. Isn’t it? That is what I am now, right now. Guess what’s the reason behind this happiness? I have been gifted with a wonderful, extremely sweet tasting ripe jackfruit by an awesome friend of mine. When life throws unbeatable tasty fruit like this, who in the world wouldn’t be happy? That too, I am bringing in this super awesome fruit to my food blog after 2 long years(hello jackfruit payasa). It’s a long interval. I know. The bounce back of jackfruit is happening now in 2017 as a melt in mouth halwa. The scrumptious jackfruit halwa has doubled my happiness indeed.
Though I can find lot of jackfruits around here in UAE supermarkets, it’s difficult to find fresh and good ones. Sometimes out of irresistible cravings for this golden fruit, I end up buying a big packet full of it. The cravings are so high that the entire packet gets cleared off even before I reach home. In such a scenario, cooking something out of jackfruit doesn’t even sound practical. And I look forward for a big, mammoth sized jackfruit which I can eat and cook to the hearts content.
And it’s that time where I am relishing jackfruit and preparing endless delicacies out of it. I appreciate the efforts in carrying the fruit all the way from India for the sole purpose of gifting it to a food blogger like me.
Jackfruit halwa is quite effortless, in fact it doesn’t require much stirring and in flat 30 minutes you can finish up the process. The only time consuming task is separating the pods from fruit. As you finish making it, within no time it will be eaten up. I’ll give you that assurance.
