Raw Jackfruit(unripe,young) is edible? I never knew that until my MIL cooked once after marriage. I loved it the very first time when she made curry with it. I don’t know any recipes with raw jackfruit other than this, but love it a lot. The texture is so different and I love it. The cleaning process is bit messy and tedious. But everything is worth to have this curry. My MIL made this curry when I was there in Chennai last week and I clicked to post this recipe here. We call the raw jackfruit in tamil as ‘pala mouse’ . We got it fresh from the tree from Karaikudi Mami’s house.They also picked a sweetest ripe jackfruit and it was as sweet as honey! We made curry with half of this raw jackfruit and kootu with the other half. The unripe jackfruit should be young and tender to make a delicious dish. We do get this cleaned and cut in Singapore. But sure, nothing can beat the backyard garden picked fresh one.
The recipe is similar to my raw banana curry, only a little bit different.
