I tried it last week. It was very delicious, crispy on the outside and perfectly cooked inside. Hence I am sharing this tender jackfruit pakoda recipe with you all. This is a vegan and gluten free snack recipe. This is popularly called as mulka in the coastal regions. We do this recipe using fruit as sweet and this spicy mulka as well.
Points to remember while making this halasina kayi pakodas are

2. Make sure to add enough rice flour (if the pulp quantity is more, then the pakodas absorb more oil when we fry)
Hope you will give it a try and share your thoughts with us.
