Raw Jackfruit Recipe


Jackfruit is something not cooked or used in every home. I am very fond of it and call it Vegetarian Chicken. It is very chewy like chicken but it is a fruit. It’s basic origin is from South India. It is grown in may tropical regions throughout the world. We use raw jackfruit to make vegetable. Generally people deep fry/shallow fry the jackfruit or kathal pieces before cooking. In this recipe I have air fried it. So it’s a healthy recipe.

It goes really well with the Naan (Indian bread). For the recipe of Naan CLICK HERE
