Jackfruit delight is a traditional sweet dish which is prepared using the steaming process. It is now ready and getting cooled before it can be consumed It is kept on a water moat to avoid ants getting in. What are your traditional dishes?

I love the taste of Jackfruit and I wonder how your steamed Jackfruit delight tastes...is it sweet or savory? And I didn't know that was an Indian traditional food! We do have a traditional steamed cake here called pandan cake.

We cannot write recipes here. It is a long draw process. What is the main ingredient of Pandan cake?

@allknowing It's a steamed chiffon cake that's soft, sweet and fluffy. Its main ingredients consist of egg yolks, pandan leaf juice, coconut milk, sugar and flour.

Good idea to make a water moat, the ants loves sweet food. We have different traditional dishes for each Italian region, many of them.

This water moat is a regular feature here. Even when visitors turn up and there are a few goodies that need to be put back where they belong but at the point there is no time, we just place them on the moat without worrying. We too have many traditional dishes. Can you just name one.

@allknowing Something original from my native city in Italy, saffron risotto and breaded veal cutlets. I am going to make the veal for dinner.

I like the idea of a water moat. Many years ago we stood the legs of the kitchen table in containers of water to stop the ants climbing on the table.

But sweets could be kept in any part of the house. We have solved that problem by creating this moat.

We have something similar in our part of Kerala. It's called an Ela Ada, basically, a steamed crepe within a banana leaf. You can watch the recipe here.
Ela ada is an authentic recipe of Kerala . It is steamed in banana leaf and has a wonderful flavor. For ingredients & measurements, http://www.veenaskitchen....

What we have is normally prepared in teak tree leaves. We do not have a teak tree and so we do it in fig leaves which are large and have their own colour and smell.

That's an ingenious way of preventing the ants from getting at the jackfruit. I've never tasted it.
