Tips (ಸಲಹೆ):

 * This can also be prepared by half frying in advance. Deep fry it again before serving.
 * Jackfruit can be refrigerated for abt 3-4 hrs before cutting to reduce the wax in it.

 * ಬಿಸಿ ಬಿಸಿ ಸವಿಯಲು ತುಂಬಾ ರುಚಿ.
 * ಇದನ್ನು ಅರ್ಧ ಕರಿದು ಮೊದಲೇ ಇಟ್ಟುಕೊಳ್ಳಬಹುದು. ಬಡಿಸುವ ಮುನ್ನ ಇನ್ನೊಮ್ಮೆ ಚೆನ್ನಾಗಿ ಕರಿಯಿರಿ.
 * ಕೊರೆಯುವ ಮೊದಲು ಹಲಸಿನಕಾಯಿಯನ್ನು ಫ್ರಿಡ್ಜ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಇಟ್ಟರೆ (3-4 ಗಂಟೆ) ಮೇಣ ಕಡಿಮೆ ಬರುತ್ತದೆ.
