How to cook jackfruit?

  • In a pressure cooker, add chopped jackfruit along with 3 to 4 cups of water and salt. Pressure cook this for 3 whistles. One on high flame and two on medium flame. Let the pressure release naturally. Jackfruit can also be cooked in a pot, but it will take longer to cook. Check out the video here. 

Making of curry paste

  • In a mixie jar or blender, add coconut, dry red chilies, coriander seeds, water, and blend to a smooth paste.

Making of jackfruit curry

  • Open the pressure cooker lid and nicely mash the jackfruit using a potato masher. Add the ground curry paste and crushed garlic, add salt if needed and bring it to a nice boil. Then simmer it for 5 to 10 minutes, and then drizzle coconut oil. Switch off the flame.


  • If you want the curry thick and creamy, add 1 or 2 tablespoon of cashews while grinding the masala.
  • A small lemon-sized tamarind ball can be added while grinding the curry paste.
  • Adjust the number of red chilies and crushed garlic to taste.
