Have you tried cooking savoury Jackfruit?
Not everyone will appreciate this combination except for fruit connoisseurs. The unique taste and mouthfeel of jackfruit blended with spicy curry and coconut milk richness.
The jackfruit can be mildly chewy like a soft gummy bear or juicy as a succulent scallop.
The taste between a pineapple and a banana with hint of mango.
Curried Chicken Drumsticks with Jackfruits
1 packet fresh Jackfruits (6 pieces)
3 pieces of fresh chicken drumsticks (whole)
3 tablespoons of chopped shallots
1 tablespoon minced garlic
300 ml thick coconut milk
300 ml hot water
5 tablespoons of homemade chicken curry paste or half packet ready chicken curry paste
2 tablespoons cooking oil
Salt to taste
Remove the jackfruit seeds and slice into two sections. Set aside.
Heat oil in a pot and fry minced garlic and shallots until fragrant.
Add the curry paste and stir fry until fragrant.
Add the whole chicken drumsticks and stir fry until the chicken is partially cooked.
Add hot water into pot and bring to boil.
Once boil, add the coconut milk.
Cover the pot and continue to simmer on low fire until gravy becomes thick and creamy.
Add the sliced jackfruits.
Season with salt to taste.
Garnished with a few pieces of mint leaves for added flavour.
Serve hot with white steamed rice.
If you are using ripe jackfruits, just cook for a short while otherwise the jackfruit will turn soft and soggy.
Recommend use semi ripe jackfruits.
You can also garnish the sliced sweet ripe jackfruits on top of the curry to serve together with the chicken drums.

Turn off the heat.
Transfer the melted chocolate into a bowl and serve with cut strawberries.
