I love to make Kheer. Jackfruit is one of my most fav fruit esp during season. When I first moved to Singapore I was surprised to see Jackfruit all year. Back home during season, whole house smells like the nice aroma of jackfruit from Kollimalai (Kolli hills). Even though I get Jackfruit here I still miss the ones I get in India. Those days my grandma used to cut the big jackfruit .. taking jackfruit is a process. which I love to watch :-). I love sweets made up of fruits. This one no exception to it
