Who doesn't love jackfruit? But not everyone knows that the young fruit can be cooked and served as one of the main dishes. We prepared this with coconut milk and finger chillies. In the photo, paired this with pan-fried pork loin and hot rice.
300 grams young jackfruit, sliced, boiled until tender
coconut extract of 2 coconuts (separate the first and second extractions)
1 medium red onion, sliced
4 cloves garlic, sliced
3 finger chillies (siling haba)
salt or fish sauce to taste
2 tbsps. cooking oil
Saute garlic and onions in medium heat until lightly transparent. Add the young jackfruit and stir for about 4 to 5 minutes. Pour in the second extraction of the coconut milk and season with salt or fish sauce. Let it simmer until the liquid has reduced in half. Add the first extract and let simmer until the sauce thickens.
