Summer started and we get lot of mangoes, jackfruits during this season. We make pickles out of tender mangoes called vadu mangai and with the matured mangoes also pickles are made. Similarly, we make Idichaka thoran with tender jackfruit and puzhuku. With the jackfruit bulbs also we make puzhku, pulinkari etc.
Jam is prepared with the ripe jackfruit bulb and chips are made with raw jackfruit. We had several trees in our house and varieties which I cannot express now as they all were very sweet and tasty.
During our childhood, we really enjoyed this fruit. My servant had gone to native place and yesterday she gave me the tender jackfruit, tamarind etc. I wanted to make the puzhuku as I realised that I have not posted the puzhuku.

It is made with karamani and a simple preparation which goes well withe Chapati, Phulka and rice also.
