Recipe For A Creamy Tender Jack Fruit Curry

Curry Paste

  • 5 cm piece of ginger, peeled
  • 2 garlic cloves, very finely chopped 
  • 2 teaspoons ground turmeric
  • 1 bird’s eye chilli or 1⁄2 teaspoon chilli flakes
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 1 teaspoon fenugreek seeds (optional) 
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon sea salt


  1. To make the curry paste, pound all the ingredients together with a pestle and mortar or pulse together briefly in a food processor to form a paste.
  2. Melt the coconut oil in a large saucepan over medium–high heat. Add the onion and cook for 3 minutes, or until softened and caramelised, then stir in the prepared spice paste and cook, stirring, for 2–3 minutes, or until fragrant.
  3. Pour the coconut milk and vegetable stock into the pan and stir in the jackfruit and bay leaves. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer and leave to cook, uncovered and stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes, or until the curry has reduced. Stir in the lime zest and juice and half the peanuts, then remove from the heat. Taste and add a little salt if necessary.
  4. To serve, divide the curry among plates and scatter over the basil, coriander and the remaining peanuts. Enjoy with cauliflower rice, if you like. For more info visit here.
