Cempedak is sweet and when cut open you can see the juicy pulps in its super thick and sticky skin. This fruit resembles Jackfruit. Jackfruit is thicker and firmer. I noticed that cempedak has 2 species, round and long. You need to rub some oil on you hands and knife to prevent the stickiness.
The scientific name is Artocarpus champeden originated from the land of Malaysia.
It is nice to have it fried. I only buy from hawker stalls and do not have a good recipe. I found 1 here which you can Goreng Cempedak and many Malaysians like to use cempedak to create pantun.
I got one too :) Buah Cempedak di luar pagar, Ambil galah tolong jolokkan, hamba masih baru blog belayar, Kalau salah tolong tunjukkan.
