    From traditional payasam to new-age kachori, the jackfruit takes on different forms this season

    The Green Path – Forgotten Food
    The aim of this all-organic restaurant is to revive old-world foods. Their buffet has a spread of pure and wholesome vegetarian dishes. The Jackfruit Payasam is light and creamy and ticks all the right boxes. Buffet `550. At Malleshwaram. Details: 49653324

    Monkey Bar
    The Jackfruit Biryani at Monkey Bar uses raw jackfruit cooked with fragrant rice and spices. The dish will surprise even non-vegetarians for its umami and meaty texture. Served with their in-house apple raita this is our pick for a meat-free meal. `380. At Indiranagar. Details: 49653443

    Farzi Cafe
    This modern Indian restaurant is known for its interesting take on familiar favourites.
    Their Rajasthani Pyaaz Ki Kachori is stuffed with masala kathal (spicy jackfruit) instead
    of the conventional masala potatoes or peas. It is served with an aloo rassa (potato curry)
    reduction. `275. At Vittal Mallya Road. Details: 7259400900

    Toast & Tonic
    This restaurant has been
    pushing the limits when it comes
    to food and this dish is no less. In an unexpected combination, the Young Jackfruit and Smoked Goat Cheese Tostada brings together the chewy flavour of the veg with crumbly cheese. Seasonal offering. At Wood Street. Details: 41116878

    The Wall Street Journal
    declared jackfruit as the next
    big, trending superfood this season. Although most Indians grew
    up consuming it, either as Chakka Varuthathu (moreish chips) or as the Halasina Hulli sambar, this undervalued ingredient promises greatpotential when it comes to taste and nutrition. From the nouveau to the old-school, here’s a look at our pick of jackfruit dishes around town.

    Fort Kochi
    The restaurant celebrates Malayali
    cuisine at its finest. From their dessert section, the delectable Jackfruit ice cream is a definite treat. Made with juicy jackfruit pulp and cream, this one is a must-have if you like heady flavours. `225. At 1 MG Mall. Details: 22086666
