Tips (ಸಲಹೆ):
 * Grind the cooked Jackfruit immediately when it is hot. Once it is cooled, it will be difficult to grind 
 * Mixing the Jackfruit well while cooking will help in grinding
 * Vary the amount of Water added in cooking depending upon the type of Jackfruit
 * Applying little oil to hands before cutting will reduce sticking of wax
 * ಹಲಸಿನಕಾಯಿ ಸೊಳೆ ಬೆಂದ ಕೂಡಲೇ ಬಿಸಿ ಬಿಸಿ ಇರುವಾಗಲೇ ಅರೆಯಿರಿ. ತಣ್ಣಗಾದ ಮೇಲೆ ಗಟ್ಟಿಯಾಗುವುದರಿಂದ ಅರೆಯಲು ಕಷ್ಟವಾಗುತ್ತದೆ 
 * ಹಲಸಿನಕಾಯಿ ಸೊಳೆ ಬೇಯುವಾಗ ಚೆನ್ನಾಗಿ ತೊಳೆಸುವುದರಿಂದ ಅರೆಯಲು ಸುಲಭವಾಗುತ್ತದೆ
 * ಬೇಯುವಾಗ ಹಾಕುವ ನೀರಿನ ಪ್ರಮಾಣವನ್ನು ಹಲಸಿನಕಾಯಿಯನ್ನು ಹೊಂದಿಕೊಂಡು ವ್ಯತ್ಯಾಸ ಮಾಡಿ
 * ಹೆಚ್ಚುವ ಮೊದಲು ಕೈಗೆ ಸ್ವಲ್ಪ ಎಣ್ಣೆ ಹಚ್ಚುವುದರಿಂದ ಮೇಣ ಕೈಗೆ ಅಷ್ಟು ಅಂಟಿಕೊಳ್ಳುವುದಿಲ್ಲ
