The Fried Jackfruit Seed

It crossed my mind suddenly. If jackfruit seed can be eaten boiled, then maybe, it could also be eaten broiled and fried.

I only tried the fried version due to limited seed availability.

Here are the steps…

1) Gather jackfruit seeds.

3) Jackfruit seed is a dicot. Separate the smaller and bigger part. Cut the larger to smaller pieces to facilitate faster cooking time. Leave the smaller part as is.

Trust me! It is an excellent snack. Looks like a shorter version of potato fries. The outside and inner texture is similar to cassava fries.
