  • 1 cup salted raw jackfruit strips
  • 1-2 teaspoons bafat powder adjust to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon tamarind juice
  • salt to taste
  • oil for shallow frying


  • Soak the salted jackfruit in plenty of water for about 8 hours, refreshing the water (changing it) twice. If you are using aged jackfruit (which has been salted for a while) then you may need to soak it a little longer to get rid of the excessive saltiness.
  • Cut the jackfruit into strips and marinate it with a paste made out of bafat powder, tamarind juice and salt - adjust flavours to taste. The measures are an approximation. Marinate for at least 20 minutes
  • Heat oil in a frying pan and fry the marinated strips till crispy on all sides.
  • Serve hot as an accompaniment to rice and curry or rice congee (kanji/gruel)
