Nutritional values

The flesh of the jackfruit is similar to poultry, making it a great vegetarian alternative. It's also rich in fiber, which helps stimulate digestion, as well as calcium for bone and teeth health. 

Instead of rice, boiled potatoes also go really well with this dish.

Add brown rice to 2 cups boiling salted water, stir once and cook over low heat in a closed pot for 25-30 minutes until the rice has absorbed the water. In the last 5 minutes add the peas and cook until done. Then loosen the rice in the pot briefly and let it swell for a few minutes in the closed pot on the switched off stove.
