my first picture
This is the first pic I'm putting up that i took. As you can see I'm only just getting the hang of it. It's a terrible picture. But then I guess that's the way to learn :)
That is the jackfruit tree outside my window. It's jackfruit time. So last week huge quantities of chips from raw jackfruit were made--unfortunately all finished already!! Also we made ripe jackfruit preserve--chakka velaychatha--with jaggery and coconut and then of course there was jackfruit seeds and raw mango curry and seeds sauteed. As you can see, definitely jackfruit season!
I put a link to the wikipedia page so that you can see a better picture of a jackfruit tree.
