JackFruit is a speciality fruit of Kerala. Its a fruit that is famous in this season of summer. You can see vendors along the roadside selling them. One of our family friend had send us a Jackfruit lastweek and I was waiting for it to get ripe to clean it and take off the tasty fruit from it. Yesterday I spent nearly two hours cleaning it . There was a whole lot of fruit that we distributed to our neighbours and relatives , having some for ourselves. I took some to my office too.
I had planned to make Soya milk from the Arusuvai Ingredient - Soya Beans that Jayashree send me. After I saw the Jackfruit , I decided to make JackFruit SoyMilk Shake. Here is how I made SoyMilk
1/2 Kg Soy beans
Soak the beans in water for 10- 16 hours then rub off the skin. Rubbing the skin off makes the extraction process efficient and reduces the beany taste.An alternative is cracking the soya beans before soaking. When you use soya beans you need 6-8 hours soaking time.Rub off the skins then wash the beans .Grind the now clean beans and add one litre of water. You can mix manually or using a blender I used the blender. Filter the soy pulp through a thin cloth and blend the pulp again with little water. This can be done for 3 time Heat the soymilk until it boils and let it boil for 5 to 10 minutes. Cool it and this soy milk can be refrigerated for 3 days.
Now for the preparation of MikShake:
Jack Fruit pulp - 1 cup
Soy Milk - 2 cups
Sugar as per taste.
Blend the jack fruit pulp, soy milk and sugar in the blender till smooth. Chill it and serve when required in a tall juice glass.
