Jackfruit Pancake/ Phanas Poale

Jackfruit or Phanas as we call it, is one of my favorite fruits. We used to get that in abundance in my native place in North Canara. During our summer visits first thing I used to do was to run to the big jackfruit trees in the backyard and count how many we could have before we leave. We would keep a watch on the ripening jackfruit so no monkeys can harm them. Even before they ripe sometimes my granny would take it out to make curries, chips etc. Ripe ones were usually attacked by all the grandkids.. But she would sometime ask us to leave some of it so she can make dosa or idli out of it.

Here I don't have the luxury of getting fresh fruit. But I always stock up on canned ones. My kids love it too. So when I was blog hopping Kaveri, I jumped to this recipe of jackfruit pancakes. Though I have had this many times before, it's never enough for me. :o) Kaveri has lot of Palakkad recipes on her space. These pancakes turned out really good. Jackfruit gives real nice flavor to common dishes. Try it out and let me know.

Prep Time: 15 min | Cooking Time | Pressure cook time + making each pancake


Jackfruit - 1 Cup (1 can full of jackfruits)
Paraboiled rice/ Long grain rice - 1 1/2 Cup
Jaggery - 1 Cup (Brown Sugar)
Salt - 1/4 tsp.
Oil to grease the pan

Method of Preparation:

~ Wash rice and leave it to soak for 3 to 4 hours.
~ Soak jaggery in little water and let the impurities settle down.
~ Meanwhile if you have fresh jackfruit, remove the shell, pull out each fruits from it. Deseed and wash the fruits. If it's from canned, remove the syrup and rinse with water
~ Roughly chop the fruit and pressure cook for 2 or 3 whistles.
~ Grind the rice adding little water. When the batter is coarse, add cooked jackfruit and jaggery, grind to smooth paste.
~ Heat a thick pan and pour a ladle full of batter onto the pan. Drizzle some oil on and around the pancake/ dosa. Let it cook on that side for a minute.
~ Flip it over gently using a flat spatula and cook the other side.
~ Serve it hot with some butter on top.
