How To Make Jackfruit Dosa At Home | Jackfruit Dosa Recipe

Digital creator Nitya Hegde shared an easy recipe for jackfruit (kathal) dosa to make at home. To make this dosa, take one cup of rice and soak it for at least four hours. Once done, use an oiled knife to open the jackfruit. Extract the pulp and remove all the seeds from it. After the rice has been soaked for a couple of hours, take a blender jar and add it along with the jackfruit pulp. Blend and make a smooth paste out of it. Add some jaggery for sweetness and blend again.

At this point, if you feel like the consistency of the batter is too thick, add a little bit of water and mix well. Once you get the desired consistency, heat a tawa and grease it with some oil. Add the jackfruit dosa batter and cook it on low heat until it turns slightly golden brown. Gently remove it from the tawa and enjoy!

The digital creator recommends enjoying this jackfruit dosa with chutney, podi powder, ghee, or just like that.

How To Buy The Best Jackfruit This Summer – 5 Easy Tips

Jackfruit or kathal is a seasonal fruit that is only available in summer. Don’t know how to spot the right one for yourself? Fret not! Here are some easy ways to buy and store jackfruit.

  1. When you are buying a cut jackfruit, make sure that the flesh has a vibrant yellow color without any dark patches.
  2. If you are buying a whole fruit, make sure the jackfruit smells pleasant. A strong smell indicates that the fruit is ripe and has juicy flesh inside.

  3. If the jackfruit you spot is mostly brown and has several dark spots, it means it’s overripe and will become stale in no time.

  4. If the jackfruit’s skin is softened, it’s ripe enough to consume. Press the skin gently and feel it with your hand.

  5. If you buy a jackfruit just to consume it after a few days, choose a green one. Let it ripen at room temperature for a couple of days, until it becomes ripe and ready to be cooked.
