Recipe of the Month- JACKFRUIT SEMOLINA MUFFINS WITH JAGGERY

Ingredients : (makes 8 muffins)

  • Jackfruit pulp – 1 ¼ cup
  • Jaggery – ½ cup
  • Semolina / Rava – ¾ cup
  • Coconut (grated) – ½ cup
  • Raisins – 15
  • Baking powder – ½ tsp
  • Baking soda – ½ tsp

Procedure: Remove the seeds from the jackfruit and grind the fruit into a smooth pulp without adding any water. In a pan, roast the semolina over medium heat until it turns aromatic. It is not necessary that the semolina has to change colour. It just needs to roast enough to turn aromatic. In the meantime, measure the jaggery in a sauce pan. Add the jackfruit pulp to the pan and heat it over low heat to dissolve the jaggery. Let the semolina and the jackfruit mixture cool down to room temperature. Now add baking soda, baking powder and grated coconut to the semolina. Add the jackfruit mixture along with raisins and mix gently. Line the muffin tins with liners or grease the pans. Fill the muffin tins until 3/4th full. Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree F oven for about 22 to 24 minutes or until the toothpick inserted in the centre of the muffin comes out clean. Cool completely on rack.
