1/2 tbsp belachan (shrimp paste)

1/2 tsp tumeric powder


1.  Remove skin of  jackfruit leaving pith and pulp with seeds intact.  Cut into large chunks.  ( Rub jackfruit with a little oil as it is cut to prevent sap from oozing out).  Boil jackfruit in salted water for 10-15 minutes or until the fruit is tender.  Drain and rinse with cold water.
