Chakkapori / jack fruit fritters



  1. Jackfruit flesh pieces/ Varikka chakka chula – as required
  2. Maida – 1/2 cup
  3. Cornflour – 1/2 cup
  4. Sugar – 5 level tbsps.
  5. Salt – 1/2 tsp.
  6. Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp.
  7. Water – 1/3 cup
  8. Baking powder – 1/2 tsp.
  9. Egg – 1 medium
  10. Oil/ghee/ combination of both – as required for deep frying


  1. Remove the seeds from each chakka chula keeping it intact.
  2. Combine the ingredients from 2 to 9 to make a batter that is neither too thick nor too thin. The batter should be thick enough to coat the jack fruit pieces well.
  3. Heat oil/ghee for deep frying . When the oil becomes really hot, reduce heat to a minimum and slide the jack fruit pieces into the hot oil after coating them well with the batter. Increase heat to medium and fry till golden brown and crisp.
  4. Drain on paper towels.
  5. Serve hot.
