This delicious Jackfruit Curry Recipe is a delightful treat, with an aromatic blend of spices and herbs! A yummy rendition of the flavors of the East, green jackfruit, purple sweet potatoes, simmered in red Thai curry paste, coconut milk, kumquats and Thai basil.
We love curries in our house so much that it doesn’t matter what version I do my family enjoys them. Today I’m making a Thai version of Jackfruit Curry, I love making curries because they are simple and easy to prepare yet bursting with flavors! They are perfect for feeding a crowd alone with a salad or with rice.
After sauteing the vegetables, I added the Thai red curry paste, coconut milk vegetable broth along with the other ingredients and let the curry simmer for 20 minutes until thickened. This dish was creamy and bursting with flavors. The aroma of the kitchen took me to far away Thailand, and the taste was out of this world!
