Mallung or mallum is a favourite Sri Lankan dish which is prepared by finely chopping young green jackfruit and mixing with other ingredients and frying. Mallung is by design a very dry dish which has very less or no sauce. By frying the liquids from ingredients are evaporated. This delicious malluma is prepared with tender jackfruit.

  • 3 finely sliced green chillies
  • 1 medium onion finely sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon of Turmeric powder

  • 1 teaspoon black mustard seeds – lightly crushed in pestle and mortar
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 cloves of garlic crushed
  • 4 curry leaves


Finely shred the canned Cos.

In a large pan, Mix the Kos, green chillies, onion, turmric, salt and water. Close the pan cook until the jackfruit is tender and the water has evaporated.
