Protein-rich, sugar-free Laddus made from Jackfruit seeds – Wonderful and traditional dessert option. Jackfruit used to be a seasonal fruit in India appearing in the mid of the Indian summer and lasting until the monsoons started. They make a reappearance towards the end of the monsoons and last until December / January. But now Jackfruit is available year round in many parts of the country due to hybrid cultivation. The southern states of Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu is where Jackfruit is found in large numbers but the eastern part of India also has its fair share.

Great for a festival menu or when you have those sweet cravings – Jackfruit seeds laddu is perfect for these!

The beauty of Jackfruit is that both the fruit and seed are edible and you’ll find traditional households making Sambar and Payasam out of the seeds. What we have here is a popular sweet in India – the Laddoo, made out of Jackfruit seeds.

Before we made it, there were a lot of questions over how the taste would turn out and how would the consistency be. To our surprise the end result is spectacular. The Ladoos are not as soft as the Boondi Laddoos nor are they brittle – they are somewhere in between. The taste of the Laddoo has flavors of the Jackfruit seed (which is subtle) which is enhanced by the dry coconut, cardamom, and Jaggery.
