I went back to my home town recently and brought back this young jackfruit. My mother used to cook this with various style, this is one of my favourite.

1/2 young jackfruit - remove the skin
1 stalk lemongrass - crushed & cut into 2
2 cups coconut milk
Few pcs salted fish (preferably kurau bones )
Salt & sugar to taste

Ingredient B (make into chilli paste)
1 red chilli
3 pcs chilli padi
3 onions
1 tsp turmeric powder
1/2" galangal
1 pc turmeric peel (asam gelugor)

1. Cut young jackfruit and boiled it until it soft. Remove and set a side
2. At the meantime, blend ingredient B; into paste
3. Combine coconut milk with chili paste, add lemongrass, salted fish & turmeric peel into a pot. Let it simmer
4. Once it's boiled, slowly add the jackfruit, add a pinch of sugar and salt if required. (Dont forget that the salted fish is already salty)
5. Served with white rice
