Jack fruit Kadubu /Halasina hannina kadubu

This jack fruit dish is a very popular dish among havyaka's and tastes havenly when you get it right. It is soft, flavorful and a treat for eye's to even look at. It's traditionally made using banana leaves as a wrapper which helps to cook the dish evenly with the steam and provides a light touch of it's own flavor and also the whole thing together offers a very authentic feeling to the dish.
