Kolmi Shak with Jackfruit Seeds – A Traditional Bengali Recipe is a unique preparation. Food lovers may like this recipe.

My least favourite fruit is jackfruit. However, the preparations made by its seeds are very amazing. We can make different dishes with these seeds and each dish has its unique level of delicacy.

Main Ingredients used

Jackfruit Seeds 

Jackfruit is a tropical fruit that is produced all over the world. The flavour of jackfruit is sweet and delicious. Minerals like zinc, calcium, iron, copper, magnesium and potassium are also present in minor levels in the seeds.

Jackfruit seeds are high in vitamin and riboflavin, which aid in the conversion of food into energy and maintain the health of our eyes, skin, and hair.

Kolmi Shak

Kolmi Shak, sometimes known as water spinach, is a popular green leafy vegetable in South and Southeast Asian cuisine. Salads, braised dishes, and stir-fries all benefit from its pleasantly sweet, mucilaginous, succulent leaves and stems.

The scientific name of it is Ipomoea Aquatica Forsk. It reduces cholesterol, treats jaundice and liver disorders and is very effective in the treatment of anaemia.


There are 300 different kinds of prawns on the globe. There are only a few that can be used for commercial reasons. Bagda prawn, Lobster, Shiba prawn, Giant tiger prawn and White prawn are some of the options in our seafood market.

Selenium, one of the most efficient antioxidants for supporting healthy cells, is abundant in prawns. They also have a lot of zinc, which is necessary for a healthy immune system to develop.


The potato is a starchy tuber of the plant Solanum tuberosum, which is a perennial nightshade. It is a root vegetable native to the Americas. It is both inexpensive and simple to digest.

Vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants abound in potatoes. It is healthy food. It promotes immunity, improves blood sugar management, and lowers the risk of heart disease.


Pumpkins belong to the same plant family as cucumbers and melons, and they are a form of winter squash.  It is typically spherical and orange in colour.

Pumpkins include vitamin C, vitamin E, iron, and folate, in addition to beta carotene, all of which help to boost the immune system. More pumpkin in your diet can help your immune cells fight viruses and heal faster when you have a wound.

Green Chilli

Green chilli is an essential ingredient in Indian cuisine. It grows all over the year. It is spicy in taste and is of two colours green and red.

Green chilli is high in vitamin C, so consuming it can help keep your skin looking young and healthy. Green chiles can aid with digestion as well as cancer prevention.
