Jackfruit Buns / Jackfruit flavoured Mangalore Buns

Jackfruit Buns is a modified version of the very popular Mangalore Banana Buns. Buns is a recipe from coastal Karnataka. Whenever we have over riped bananas we prepare buns for breakfast or for evening snack.  This is a very simple recipe. And this time I tried it adding jackfruit pulp in place of mashed bananas.

2 cups maida / all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup curds
10-12 jackfruit segments chopped and blended into a smooth puree
Baking  soda less than 1/4 tsp
Baking powder less than 1/2 tsp
1 tsp jeera/ cumin seeds
2 tsp oil or ghee
Oil for frying

  • Take curd, jackfruit pulp. sugar, salt, cooking soda, baking powder, and cumin seeds in a mixing bowl and mix well
  • After the sugar is dissolved add maida and make a soft dough
  • Keep the dough covered for 8-10 hours
  • Divide the dough into equal portions n roll into a thick puri
  • Deep fry into golden brown buns
  • Tastes nice with hot coffee or tea.
  • If you are using banana then use two mashed ripe bananas in place of jackfruit pulp.
