Jackfruit curry with pineapple
March 3rd, 2018 | main dishes
Curry dishes, especially the traditional sailor’s curry, are not to be left out of our diet. Mostly a curry is cooked on chicken. Here I introduce a vegetarian alternative – for those who want to reduce their meat consumption. Ginger, garlic, poppy seed, cumin, turmeric, coconut milk and jackfruit. Pretty exotic, right?
Do you know jackfruit? They are grown in all tropical areas of the world. The young, immature fruit is used as a vegetable and is a contemporary alternative for those who value a conscious and meat-reduced diet. The fruit, which can weigh up to 30 kg in the ripe state, is full of ballast and minerals and, at 22 Kcal per 100 g, is a great, low-calorie base for our curry.
I am not a vegetarian and I do not believe in products advertised by names like “Tofu Schnitzel”, “Vegetarian Meatballs or Roast Sausages”. I do not need “as-if-products”. I like to eat vegetarian, but I also like to eat meat. What matters is where the meat comes from. I only buy meat from organic and regional breeding. And I try to reduce our meat consumption because we all eat too much meat. Jackfruit is a good alternative!
In Germany they don’t sell jackfruit at the weekly market. So where do you buy it from? Jacky F. is a young company that imports canned jackfruit from Sri Lanka. Founder Julia knows the farmers and producers personally. It ensures a transparent, fair and sustainable supply chain. Only the best organic ingredients are used without the addition of artificial flavors, preservatives and additives. At Jacky F. you can easily buy the jackfruit online and find all sorts of interesting facts about this versatile fruit.
Have fun cooking the jackfruit curry and even more fun while enjoying it!

And this is how the wife of the captain does it
This ginger-garlic paste is essential for many Indian dishes. I prepare it in greater quantity and freeze it. To do this I portion the paste in small handy packages of 1 to 1.5 TS in aluminum foil and pack them in a plastic box.

Indonesian Gado Gado – a delicious “blend”
Gado Gado is an Indonesian national dish (one of the few without rice) that could be described as a large, colorful vegetable plate with exotic peanut dressing. If Gado Gado is served in the crew mess, my dearest captain usually gets a bright and proud message from an Indonesian crewmember: “Today it’s Gado Gado, Captain!” Because he likes this dish so much, we now prepare it at home from time to time…read more
