JAK FRUIT BOMBAY HALWA


In Chennai it is difficult to get raw jackfruit kernels,in fruit shops.You have to go to a

wholesale market to get.So whenever i see the ripe luscious variety i buy many trays.

We had a very good jak fruit tree in my paternal home,which had fruit always.My

cherished memories with my brother in my childhood days,was when we both used to

go down to the garden ,grab the closest fruit ,sit there ,enjoy the fruit under the tree

itself .It is really lovely to sit there and eat…priveleged people will know ….

This is the first time,i have tried this recipe, (small quantity)and it turned awesome..My

kids are the best food critics.There comments will be very clear,hope you

understand….They said it was awesome.So you could try your hand at it .

For the recipe now.

INGREDIENTS

1 cup ripe ,sweet jak fruit kernels

1/2 cup sugar

2 tblsp cornflour+half cup water mixed without lumps

4-6 tblsp.ghee (you could add more if you like)

pinch of salt

edible camphor a pinch

1/2 tsp.cardamon powder

saffron stands a few /or yellow coloring(optional)

any type of nuts you like(cashewnuts/almonds/raisins/melon seeds)

METHOD

Remove the seeds from the kernels,and make a pulp using a blender(small bits and

pieces remaining also will be good).Heat 1 tblsp.ghee in a thick bottomed pan ,and add

the ground jak kernels,and cook till it changes to a golden color.Add sugar and mix well

till sugar dissolves.Next add the cornflour mixture,(take care at this stage  the mixture

will thicken quick).Add the rest of the ingredients and keep stirring till the mixture

leaves the sides of the pan.Transfer onto a greased tray.Apply a little ghee on top.Allow to

cool,and cut into shapes.

Note:Please do not mind the thin slices in the photo.I tried only 1 cup quantity and that gave only 6 slices.
