Jackfruit ,is my favourite which has dual advantage which is cooked as a vegetable when raw and  also as a  fruit when ripe.I regularly cook this as a vegetable which we get in Indian stores in cans here.

    it is panasa pottu,and not pattu.
    pattu means silk in telugu.

    All the same taste of this curry, like all andhra curries, is great and unique.
    apply oil to palms while cutting panasa kai.
