My maiden attempt in making tender Raw Jackfruit more intresting 😊 however its one such vegetable which is versatile with which you can tryout many dishes and loved by many as its a great substitute to chicken or mutton ….

Today i made Kathal Pepper Roast adopting master chef Sanjeev Kapoors recipe of Mutton pepper roast recipe I saw this recipe today morning in his cookery show and thought why not substitute mutton for kathal / raw jackfruit and my idea worked it tasted awesome with flavours and spiciness of pepper  ….

So guys here is one more addition of recipe to our lovely veggie Kadgi / Kathal / raw jackfruit ….😍😍😍

Easy to make no churn, creamy, smooth, tasty natural flavoured, eggless Icecream …….
Jackfruit season is still on and today i am here with delicious🍨🍨🍨…. A good friend of ours had given us a quite large jackfruit, we enjoyed the fruit to the core ,distributed among neighbours , made many varieties of jackfruit dishes but still a box full was laying I didn’t wanted them to go waste, so an idea flashed of making Jackfruit Ice Cream ,which I had tasted in a famous outlet of  “Natural Ice Cream “stores😋😋😋 (though my first choice is tender coconut or sitaphal flavour 😉)…

When i just checked my kitchen pantry i saw a tin of Amul Mithai mate tin about to expire so made the best use of both jackfruit and mithai mate and tried using it in my 3 ingredients easy to make basic ice cream recipe 😊 and results is here just perfect equally good to store bought ones😍😀❤

Ice cream you scream we all scream for Ice cream😂, This is one such dish /dessert that liked by all kids to elders, no one says no to it 😀….Its welcomed  by everyone in any season.. so here is a basic recipe, which you all can give a try and enjoy any flavours of your choice with your loved ones…! 

You can even add any flavours / fresh fruit pulp of your choice (no limits for ideas is’nt it friends😀)…so why waiting go get ur favourite fruit ,ingredients and enjoy 😊

Homemade is Happiness ❤❤❤

Recipe is as follows

•250 ml Amul fresh Cream

•2 cups Jackfruit pulp

•1 tin condensed milk (200 gms i used amul mithai mate tin or you can even use any condensed milk ) 

•2 tblsp finely chopped jackfruit (optional, i have used here)


▪In a blender use amul cream ,pulp and condensed milk blend everything using pulse option for 3-4 min , pour this in a airtight container cover tightly with a plastic sheet and close lid ,freeze 8 hrs 

▪After 8 hrs again pour this mixture to blender and blend using pulse option then add this to container add jackfruit chopped mix and close with plastic sheet and lid freeze and set till done (overnight)….

*see that your freezers freezing point is to maximum

*Use a airtight tin or container and tightly place plastic sheet ,tie it with a rubber band then close lid for perfect no churn ice cream

* As the icecream is fully influenced with the flavour and taste of jackfruit, there is no need of using chopped jackfruit, i like them here while eating so have used it.

Ponsa Mulik / Halasina Hannina Mulka /Jackfruit Fritters…… made this yummy sweet bites instantly using sooji (bombay rava), These fritters are crispy outside and soft inside with mild sweetness and influenced flavour of  jackfruit .

The other versions of making this are by adding soaked and ground rice or using rice rawa, i just love them in any ways 😍👌😀

The other version of making these fritters using rice is already in my blog please check the link if any one likes to know the recipe

Homemade is Happiness ❤❤❤


•1 cup chopped jackfruit(ripe) 

•2 tblsp fresh grated coconut

•2 pod cardamom (deskinned)

•a pinch salt

•2 tblsp  Jaggery (or as per sweetness depending on jackfruit sweetness) 

•1 cup Bombay rava approximately (sooji /medium rava quantity varries upon the amount that holds to the mixture untill tthe mixture becomes thick and easy to handle and give it a shape)

•few cashewnuts chopped (optional)

•oil for deep frying


 ▪Grind jackfruit, coconut, cardamom ,salt, jaggery to fine paste without using water remove this to a bowl 

▪Add Bombay Rawa /sooji , add chopped cashews, mix everything well till combines, make small lemon sized balls from the mixture and deep fry them on medium heat till golden and cooked well inside out..


*In coastal areas we use  coconut oil for deep frying which doubles the aroma and taste but no problem if refined oil is used..😊

*You can even add ripe banana instead of jackfruit  to make same fritters




Easy and quick Lemon Chicken 👌👌👌…. Enjoy making this on a holiday or any time as it can be made in jiffy, involves less work , less ingredients and easily made at home !

Simple yet delicious lip smacking restaurant style dish , proves to be a great starter or as a side dish to main course 😀..

Lemon chicken is mildly spiced with a thick sauce influenced with the aroma of lime, which makes the dish more yummy and fabulous ……There are many ways of making it. Some deep fry marinated chicken and add to seasoning and the other method is by using boiled marinated chicken then added to seasoning ,both tastes good in their own ways 😊 i here have opted for boiled chicken as it becomes tender, juicy and more tasty and kids will just love it as my elder son does😊😍….

Happy cooking and Happy eating 🍋🍗
