Jackfruit Seed Curry

I have been enjoying eating and cooking exotic and rare fruits lately, and jackfruit is one of those fruits. I love green jackfruit and I enjoy cooking with it, such as in a few of my favorite jackfruit recipes, Vegan Jackfruit Stew, Jackfruit Curry Recipe, and BBQ Jackfruit Sandwiches.

Jackfruit Seed Curry

What Is Jackfruit? Jackfruit is the largest tree-borne fruit in the world. It is a tropical fruit and a species of the fig and breadfruit family.

The fruit is large, with green bumpy skin and pale yellow flesh that is stringy, containing bright yellow edible pods with soft sweet flesh and a seed in the center. The ripe flesh tastes like a combination of pineapple, mango, and banana.

I recently got some ripe jackfruit from a friend who picked them off their tree. It was the sweetest jackfruit that I had since my childhood. The reason why it reminded me so much of the ones I ate growing up was because it was also tree ripened. 

I didn't want to discard the jackfruit seeds, because they are also edible. I boiled the jackfruit seeds and decided to make a curry with half of the boiled jackfruit seeds.

My recipe is Jamaican style, using green onion, thyme, allspice, and Scotch bonnet pepper. I also use coconut milk because I love it in my curry recipes. For curry powder, you can try my amazing Easy Curry Powder Recipe or use my favorite storebought version, Chief Curry Powder
