Malayali's love for Kerala mixture is 'legendary' and it tastes perfect with any beverage, ranging from your evening tea to a booze party! Do you know a delicious mixture can be made out of the jackfruits in your backyard too? Jackfruit mixture can be an addictive sweet, crunchy and spicy snack that makes you wanting for more but also has its health benefits. Here's the recipe:

1 cup thick jackfruit pulp
½ cup jackfruit seed powder
½ cup chickpea flour
¼ cup roasted rice flour
1 tbsp Kashmiri chili powder
1 ½ tbsp regular chili powder
½ tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp asafoetida powder
150 gms peanuts
100 gms yellow dal
8 dried chilies
Curry leaves as required
8 garlic cloves (crushed)
Salt as required
Coconut oil as required
Jackfruit chakini or the rags on the rind

Mix the jackfruit pulp, jackfruit seed powder, chickpea flour and rice flour with 1 tbsp Kashmiri chili powder, 1 tbsp regular chili powder, ½ tsp asafoetida, ½ tsp turmeric powder, salt and 2 tsp coconut milk into smooth dough
3/4th part of this dough should used to make the sev and the boondhi could be made using the rest
Loosen the dough kept aside for making boondhi by adding water so that it could be dripped through the holes of a strainer
Heat coconut oil in a pan
Fill an idiyappam mould with the thick dough
Press into the hot oil
Fry them until they aren’t too brown
Take out the sev from the hot oil
Meanwhile, pour the loosened dough through a strainer
This would drip into the oil as tiny balls
Fry them until they are nice and crunchy
After that, fry the peanuts, yellow dal, dried chilies, garlic, curry leaves and jackfruit rags separately
Spread the fried peanuts, dal, chilies, curry leaves, garlic and jackfruit rags on a flat bottomed vessel
Crush the sev into small pieces
Spread the boondhi
Sprinkle some chili powder, ½ tsp asafoetida and salt as required
Give everything a good mix.
