Jackfruit Bites

            Jackfruit Bites - Clearspring

These Jackfruit bites are delicious on their own or with a tofu mayo, ketchup or your favourite dips. Perfect bites to have as a starter or as a side. You can also tear or shred the jackfruits into smaller pieces and make it into a patty for burgers or with vegetables.


For the seasoning
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp plain flour 

For the batter


  1. Drain and rinse the jackfruit and transfer into a bowl. If you have very large chunks, slice them in half to create bite size pieces. 
  2. Sprinkle the seasonings on to the jackfruit and mix well and let it sit for 5 minutes.
  3. In a separate bowl, add the plant milk and apple cider vinegar and mix well.
  4. Dip the seasoned jackfruit in the batter then coat it in plain flour. Repeat this twice so it's double dipped and set aside on a plate or a tray.
  5. Deep or shallow using around 200ml oil (depending on the size of your pan you may need more or less oil) and fry for 3-5 minutes on medium-heat at around 180 degrees, turning it so all the sides are cooked and has a crispy finish or bake in the oven at 200 degrees for 15-20 minutes turning it half way to make sure all sides are cooked. 
  6. Serve on its own or with your favourite dips like vegan mayo, mustard or ketchup.
