Jackfruit Fritters (Mullik)

This is the second sweet snack that I am preparing from the jackfruit.

Since Jackfruits are available in plenty during the rainy season, this special snack, Mullik (as it is known in konkani) is prepared in most Konkani households and when eaten over a cup of hot coffee (or for that matter hot tea) with the sound of pitter-patter of the raindrops at the background, it feels like heaven. Any Amchi or Konkani person will vouch for it!!



Ripe Jackfruit plums


Rice powder

1 tbsp

Semolina (fine sooji)

1 tbsp


A pinch

Coconut scrapings

1 tbsp


For frying


A small bowl


  1. Grind the jackfruit plums with rice powder and coconut scrapings to a smooth paste without adding water.
  2. Add salt and semolina. Mix well.
  3. Heat oil in a wok/kadai. Dip your fingers in the bowl of water and take a little of the ground mixture and form it into marble shape and slide it gently into the hot oil.
  4. Add about 6 to 8 fritters at a time. Fry it on a moderate fire till golden brown stirring occasionally.
  5. Remove these on to a paper towel.
  6. Serve hot.

Makes about 20 fritters


  • Mullik (Jackfruit fritters) are eaten as snacks.
  • If the jackfruit is not very sweet, you may add a little jaggery (according to one’s taste) while grinding the mixture. Rest of the method is as mentioned above.

Watch out for yet another recipe from this wonderful fruit in my next post.
