green jackfruit curry


My mom used to make many dishes out of young green jackfruit during the jackfruit season. But, this was not one of them. My mom's recipes are more traditional. This curry recipe here is sort of made-up as I wanted something quick. Since I get canned green jackfruit pretty much year round, this recipe is a favorite as it is easy to throw together in under 20 minutes.

1 20oz can young green jackfruit, packed in water
½ 14oz can coconut milk
½ 14 oz can diced tomatoes with chilies
2 Tbsp garam masala powder
1 Tbsp cayenne pepper powder (adjust to taste)
½ tsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp canola oil
salt to taste
1 head broccoli, florets, plus stalk sliced thin
1 medium onion diced
1 medium potato,diced
1 medium green bell pepper, diced
chopped cilantro for garnish

  1. wash, drain and chop the green jackfruit into bite-size pieces
  2. heat oil in a pan, add the onion, bell peppers and a pinch of salt, sauté over medium-high heat till onions turn brown
  3. add the potatoes and broccoli stalk, a little water, cover and cook till they are crisp-tender
  4. add the diced tomatoes, green jackfruit, broccoli florets, garam masala powder, brown sugar, cayenne pepper powder, coconut milk, some water, a pinch of salt; cover and simmer on medium-low till curry gets thick and rich
  5. off heat, adjust salt to taste, garnish with cilantro; serve warm with basmati rice
