Compared with jakfruit, chempedak is sweeter and has less acidity. It has a strong aroma. Consumers like its light and delicate texture.

 

Food Preparation

 

Chempedak Fritters
This is a delicious and complete food.


Ingredients: Batter for deep frying; whole arils with seeds still inside; flavourings to taste.

Method: Dip arils in batter and deep fry until seed is cooked--about 10 minutes. Serve plain as snack, at market or roadside stall or with rice and vegetables on the side.

Fried Chempedak Seeds


Method: Fry boiled seeds in a pan with shallow oil. Don't remove seed coats. With care, they will come off seeds and become nicely crisped. Time of frying can be varied to taste. Light frying gives a starchier taste. Breaking of seeds with implement and longer frying results in a dish like hash-brown potatoes.
