I am done with reading health articles, really. Before looking at pictures of fruits, flat abs and a measuring tape on a page, I pause for a moment and wonder if I should continue. These articles never end on a positive note. And it’s not the question of “truth hurting”. How is refraining yourself from all the good things in life true?

Disclaimer: The world is divided into two sets of people, those who love jackfruit and those who hate jackfruit. There are no in-betweens when it comes to this opium of a fruit! If you hate jackfruit this recipe is not for you!
I was this kid who loved to have fruit salad with vanilla ice cream. A medley of fruits would be generously topped over a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream and sometimes my mother would put a few cubes of jelly on it and that was the typical Sunday, post-lunch dessert at home. Not much has changed now – I still love incorporating fruits into my desserts; give me a bowl of vanilla ice cream with freshly cut mangoes, I am the happiest person in the world.
