  • I have always seen this jackfruit in can but never thought it will actually taste as good as the fresh ones you get back home. This thoran does look like as if its made from the fresh jackfruit. Now i dont have a reason not to try this out. Thanks girls 🙂

    (this is manju btw, my screen name on blogger is SuperChef)

  • This was the 1st recipe from your blog that I tried, 2nd being the chicken roast..:-) this came out great as well..:-) and thanks a ton ! The dish I made had a little sour taste, I gussed it is from the can and the syrup- Did yours have it too?

  • Julie,
    Thanks a lot for trying out our recipes and for your feedback. This dish have never tasted sour when I made it. Probably its from the syrup like you guessed. I usually discard the syrup and wash the jackfruit pieces before using it. Try that way next time. Hope this helps.

  • turned out out great this time, your tip worked ! Recipe was demanded by many, and I sent your blog details to all who asked..Keep up the great work ! 🙂

  • this is my favorite dish. my mom use to do this often. but after my marriage i missed this very much.thanks for this.i am going to try myself.
