This jackfruit curry uses an array of health-boosting spices to pack it with flavour and nutrients. And it’s ready in just 40 minutes!

 

What is jackfruit?

You will no doubt have heard of jackfruit by now – it’s become really popular in the UK over the past few years. It is a tropical fruit grown on trees in Asia, Africa and South America. Inside its bumpy shell, fresh, ripe jackfruit is waxy in texture and sweet to taste. However, when unripe (like the jackfruit found in tins), its texture is more fibrous and the flavour more neutral.

This makes it a perfect ‘base’ for imparting flavour into. The fibrous nature of unripe jackfruit means it can be cooked and pulled apart just like pork or chicken.

You can now find tinned jackfruit in the tinned vegetable aisles of most large supermarkets. Sourcing fresh jackfruit is a little harder and you will need to check your nearest Asian supermarket.

 

Is jackfruit healthy?

Just like any fruit or vegetable, jackfruit offers its own unique blend of vitamins, minerals and health benefits. Jackfruit is rich in fibre, protein and vitamin C. It’s also high in B vitamins and antioxidants, thanks to its yellow colouring.

Tip: Marinating your jackfruit overnight will really help it to absorb the spices. Let it cook down slowly to get that ‘melt in your mouth’ texture.
