Pala Kova Filled Jackfruits

Pala Kova Panasa Thonalu :

Ripe Jackfruit

Jackfruit is known to make people leap.

Jumping jacks or darne se gayab, the fruit dinosaur incites strong reaction in many. For us, it’s always been a lovable giant. The crusty exterior masks the sweet tasting, nutritional delights inside and ripe fruit perfume alone makes up the lack of outside glamour. This enchanting giant of fruit kingdom is finally getting its Jihvā fame, thanks to laudable choice by the Bee and Jai of Jugalbandi. Jackfruit is the June Jihvā Ingredient.

My contribution to Jihvā Jackfruit is this. Ripe jackfruit filled with homemade Pala Kova. Even if you don’t like Pala Kova, the jackfruit will be there to satisfy the sweet tooth.:), or vice-versa.

  2. Hi Anjali,

    From Telugu to English

    Panasa pandu = jackfruit
    Panasa thonalu = the sweet tasting ripe pouches photographed above
    Panasa vittanam = jackfruit seed

  4. Oh my God! I love Palakova and Panasa Thonalu. This must taste heavenly! It’s 7:40am in Austin and I have no way to get either of them :-(.

  5. Hi Indira,

    I was just waiting to see your entry for Jhiva for Jack fruit. Pala Kova Panasa Thonalu is a lovely recipe. The pictures are so beautiful. Panasa Thonalu brought back many child hood memories. Thanks for those beautiful words.

    Please let me know where you brought Jack fruit.

    Thanking you

  10. I recently came across your website and I love it. I think you are also from Seattle if I remember – reading somewhere in your posts. Which part of Seattle do you live? I moved to Seattle recently from Atlanta and still trying to find all the right grocery stores.I would love to chat with you. If you could share your phone number then I can call you. You have my email Id.

  13. Indira,

    What a combination, pala kova and panasa thonalu, boy that must have tasted like heaven

    Love your honey jackfruit too.

    beautiful pictures !!

  14. Indira for you in Marathi it would be

    Panasa pandu = jackfruit/ Phanas
    Panasa thonalu = the sweet tasting ripe pouches / Gara

    Panasa vittanam = jackfruit seed / Phansachi bee

    Thanks. Must try. Wondering if the tastes come together. Jackfruit has its own integrity as you would say.

  15. You certainly have a vivid imagination! to have pala kova stuffed in a panasa thonalu…i’m just so amazed and attracted to try this, it looks delicious must taste divine!
