Mom’s JackFruit Chips
  • Raw jack fruit- 1 whole fruit or half (depending upon your needs)
  • Turmeric powder- ½ tsp
  • Salt- to taste
  • Water- 3 tbsp
  • Vegetable oil- enough for deep frying
  1. If using fresh jackfruit, it’s a good idea to oil your knife and hands first before cutting, as the fruit has sticky latex in it.
  2. First cut the fruit into half and remove the central core from it.
  3. Pull out the flesh bulbs from the rag and remove the seeds from it.
  4. Cut the fruit into thin long wedges; make sure to cut all the fruits evenly for better frying.
  5. Combine the turmeric powder, salt and water in a small bowl and keep aside.
  6. Heat a deep fryer or a frying pan in medium-high, add enough oil for frying, wait till the oil is heated through, add the cut fruits and fry it stirring constantly.
  7. While frying, add about ½ tsp of turmeric, water, and salt mix and give it a stir.
  8. When adding the turmeric mix, step back as the oil will bubble up making a slight sound; don’t panic, it will settle down soon.
  9. Fry until the chips turn golden brown and transfer it to a platter with paper towel on it.
  10. When it cools down, don’t even wait for another second, grab a handful and start chewing the crispy chips.
  11. If you find that you are being selfish and feel like emptying the chips ASAP - it’s quite natural, it happens to me all the time : P
