Jackfruit Biryani

I have never been a fresh Jackfruit fan and when there were more dishes with it in I was hesitant to try them at first. Fast forward to a few months later & I can confirm cooked canned jackfruit tastes amazing in dishes. From pulled jackfruit to biryanis, I am starting to enjoy it. I don’t think I can stomach the fresh one though – the smell makes me run a mile.

I bought a can of jackfruit and made some biryani using Dishoom’s recipe. I tweaked it a bit, as you do, and it was delicious. Even Kev (who reckons he doesn’t like fake meat enjoyed the dish).

The biryani is really moist and I would normally have it with yoghurt that is spiced with some chilli powder, cumin powder and salt. On this occasion, I preferred it on its own just because the moisture content was perfect.

Are you a jackfruit fan?

  1. I am yet to try Jackfruit, I am not sure what it is about it that puts me off. This recipe does sound delicious though so maybe I’l be brave and give it a go.

  2. I’ve used tinned jackfruit once before to try and do pulled pork, but I didn’t find it the easiest to work with. This sounds very tasty though x

  3. I used to eat a lot of fresh jackfruit growing up in Asia but never tinned ones, so always intrigued to learn to cook with these. The Briyani looks yummy.
