TENDER JACKFRUIT KEBAB


Jackfruit was least known for its benefits as a superfood.Earlier considered to be a poor

man’s food,because  of its high fibre content,(satiating hunger) has now regained it’s

prominence  due to research ,and is widely sold all over the world.Jackfruit was mostly

consumed and grown in Asian countries before,but now the rest of the world are trying to

grow this jack of benefits tree.

I will just give you an outline of the benefits ,as i usually do.

It is good for diabetes,in reducing cholesterol,and is a bulk laxative which eliminates

cancer causing chemicals from the colon.Diabetic ,people under medication please do

consult your doctor if you are going to consume the ripe jak fruit.

So now let me get into the introduction of my new try of jakfruit kebab.
