Raw Jackfruit Ghassi Recipe Card


Mangalorean cuisine comprises cuisines like Udupi as well as cuisine of other Mangalorean communities like Mogaveeras, Billavas, Bunts, Saraswat Brahmins, Mangalorean Catholics and the Bearys.
It is largely influenced by other South Indian cuisines. Coconut and curry leaves are common ingredients as are ginger, garlic and chilli.  It is well known for its distinct flavours. In general, the Mangalorean recipes are quite spicy and fresh coconut is an integral part of these recipes. Rice is the staple food of the Mangaloreans though the non-vegetarians favour fish.
The Mangalore cuisine will be incomplete without rice which is cooked in various forms.  Apart from rice, another important thing used in the cuisine of Mangalore is fruits.  Another remarkable feature of the Mangalorean sweet dishes is that instead of using sugar, they use palm jaggery which is also healthy.
