One day at lunch table, while having nice and ripe jackfruit, V suggested a recipe of halwa out of jackfruit! ‘It’ll be heavenly’, was how she described her dish. I was initially apprehensive to try ANYTHING out of this wonderful fruit - because I simply love eating it and eating it as it is! Anyway, the recipe had been noted in my mind.
Coincidently, the same evening, there were guests at home for dinner, and I had to make some sweet for the dinner. So I just ventured out to try this newly learnt sweet, and it did take longer than I had expected. But I sure was worth the time spent, as it came out pretty nice. And the guests openly appreciated my halwa, and honored it by helping themselves with serving after serving, till the bowl was cleaned out! Even Dee who refuses any sweet did have it and compliment on it!
Now I make sure that I prepare this halwa every time we get home a jackfruit. I take out and save up a portion of the fruit for halwa before we start attacking the fruit from all directions to have our shares of the fruit.
