Jackfruit Muffin's

Jackfruit Muffin's

Starting this blog with one of my favorite dishes, the jack fruit muffins. There are many dishes made out of this seasonal fruit like jack fruit chips (chaka varathathu), jack fruit jam (chaka varatty), and several other dishes made out of its bulb and seed.
But a cake made out of jackfruit?? Really?? Does it taste good??The answer is yes. I started baking with the same doubt in my mind. But it came out really awesome. Here are some facts about jack fruit:
The fruit is made of soft, flesh (bulbs) with simple sugars like fructose and sucrose that when eaten replenishes energy and revitalizes the body instantly.Usually along with jack fruit people are adviced to have mangoes also so as to facilitate the digestion process.Jackfruit is rich in dietary fiber, which makes it a good bulk laxative. The fiber content helps protect the colon mucous membrane by binding to and eliminating cancer-causing chemicals from the colon.Fresh fruit has small amounts of vitamin-A, and flavonoid pigments .Together, these compounds play vital roles in antioxidant and vision functions

      This dish was also published in the site of leading newspaper manorama:

  • 9 jackfruit bulbs, finely chopped 
  • 2 tbsp chakka varatti (jackfruit jam)
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 cups maida
  • 1 ½ tsps baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt

  • Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees and sieve the maida along with the baking soda and baking powder
  • Mix chakka varatti, finely chopped jackfruit pieces, oil and sugar 
  • Mix dry and wet ingredients together
  • Add some milk to loosen the mixture if its very thick
  • Bake at 250 degree for 16 minutes
