Noodles were extruded as 6 treatments using raw jackfruit bulb flour, jackfruit seed flour and refined flour in different proportion. Different levels of refined wheat flour, jackfruit seed flour and jackfruit bulb flour were added in the ratio (40:30:30, 50:25:25, 50:30:20, 50:40:10, 50:10:40, 50:20:30). This study comprises the quality analysis of the noodles with respect to its cooking quality and physical characteristics. Cooking qualities were analysed with respect to cooking time, cooked weight, cooking loss and water absorption. Physical characteristics like extrusion behaviour, bulk density, true density, swelling index, yield ratio and colour were also analysed. It was observed that cooking and physical quality of noodles was not affected by composition of composite flour.  The developed noodles were found to be acceptable. Treatment T6 was observed to have significantly higher yield ratio and significantly lower cooking time.
