This is a classic Malay Salad. There are many variations of jackfruit salad. You can either make it plain with just the jackfruits or you can add in other vegetables like string beans,bean sprouts anything of your preferences. For this salad we normally used the young jackfruits cut into bite sizes, blanched and mix with other ingredients.

This exotic Malay salad is very satisfying and tasty.

Kerabu Nangka ini biasanya saya buat dengan celur semua bahan dan gaul bersama sambal, santan dan kerisik tapi kali ini saya ikut resipi Chef Wan dalam program Best Wan, kerabu ini ditumis dahulu bahan-bahan giling baru diaduk semua bahan lain. Rasanya tetap sama sedap dan cukup menyelerakan
