Comments:

Founder of KuKClean India, an initiative towards eating right. Little thought behind this recipe: Raw Jackfruit is meat-like in texture and taste and is great for those embracing veganism. When it's fully ripened, its freshly yellow pods are sweet and succulent and can also be used to make jackfruit ice cream. Jackfruit is loaded with fiber and is a storehouse of nutrients, considered a superfood from the ancient times. The seeds are a rich source of protein.
