Kathal Payesh / Jackfruit Pudding

We all love Pudding in any form. When we have mango in season we like to make it with mango. Otherwise whatever we could lay our hands on we make a pudding. I grow Jackfruit in my garden #Malancha and I’m proud to say that I have 5 trees so plenty of Kathal and Echor to enjoy. Echor is the vegetable which I enjoy in summers and Kathal is the fruit which I enjoy in the Monsoons. I’ve cooked with Kathal seeds or Jackfruit seeds and today I thought of making Pudding. My first preference for Indian style Pudding is always Rice and after having cooked with Jackfruit today, I would say this would be my second preference. Added Jaggery instead of sugar and it was heavenly #kolkatafoodie #foodie #MadhusKitchen #thekolkatabuzz
