Popular culinary expert and television presenter Lakshmi Nair has started a YouTube channel called lakshminairvlogs and has already aired its first episode. It is the good old jackfruit which got featured in the maiden episode of the vlog. In the video, Lakshmi Nair shows how to cut open a ripe and juicy jackfruit.
All the parts of the jackfruit including its seed and membranes are edible. Lakshmi says, in the vlog, that she would prepare delicious dishes with jackfruit in the upcoming episodes.
In the video, Lakshmi cuts open a jackfruit; separate the bulbs and clean it by taking out the seeds. The video ends with Lakshmi blending the jackfruits bulbs into fine paste, ready to prepare delicious jackfruit ada (steamed patties).
Recently, an article in Guardian described jackfruit as a, “gross looking lump of fibre with no taste to speak of.” However, it didn’t go down well with a particular section of people and the article was widely panned on the social media. It was said in the article that some people ate jackfruit “only if they had nothing better to eat.”
