Crunchy Munchy #5-Ponsa Karo/Jackfruit chips
This is how we make this
Raw, but firm and fresh jackfruits, just out of the tree, are used for this.What you need:
1 medium sized raw jackfruit
Oil - enough for deep frying
Salt - 12 heaped tsp
ü If using fresh jackfruit, it’s a good idea to oil your knife we use the Adoli( the wooden plank with curved knifeI don’t know wht is it named in English) and hands first before cutting, as the fruit has sticky latex in it.
ü First cut the fruit into half and remove the centre from it.
ü Pull out the flesh fruit bulbs from the pieces and remove the seeds from it.
ü Cut the fruit into thin long wedges.
ü Combine salt and water in a small bowl and keep aside.
ü Heat a deep fryer or a frying pan in medium-high, add enough coconut oil for frying, wait till the oil is heated through, add the cut fruits and fry it stirring constantly.
ü While frying, add about 1/2 tsp salt water and give it a stir.
ü Fry until the chips turn golden brown and transfer it to a platter with holes or paper towel.
cut all the fruits evenly for better frying.When adding thesalt water mix, step back as the oil will bubble up making a slight sound but don’t panic, it will settle down in a while.
