Green Jackfruit Curry
« on: January 19, 2014, 08:32:49 PM »

What I used:

Tender green Jack fruit  - 1 10 oz can (Fresh when ever possible)
Onion - 1 medium sized, chopped
Ginger - 2" piece, grated
Garlic - 4 fat cloves, finely minced
Turmeric Powder - 1 tsp
Red Chili Powder (or Paprika, if you like it mild) - 1 tsp
Cumin Powder - 1 tsp
Cumin Seeds - tsp
Whole Cardamom - 4-5
Whole Cinnamon - 1 stick
Whole Cloves - 4-5
Bay Lead - 2
Oil (Mustard/ Canola.Veg/ Sunflower) - 2 tbsp
Ghee (Clarified Butter) - 1 tsp
Garam Masala Powder - tsp
Sea Salt

What I did:
1. Heat oil in a pan and temper with Whole Garam Masala troika (Cardamom, Cinnamon and Cloves), Bay leaf and a cumin seeds.
2. Once the spices stop spluttering add chopped onions and fry till slightly golden.
3. Add the ginger and garlic and fry till the rawness of the garlic is gone.
4. Add salt, turmeric powder, red chili powder and cumin powder and fry till the masala is well blended and cooked through. Add small splashes of water to prevent it from sticking at the bottom.
5. Now add the chopped tomatoes and cook till the tomatoes are mushy and blend right into the masala.
6. Now add the drained and chopped tender jack fruit pieces and mix well in the masala.
7. Add cup full of water and bring it to a boil. Then reduce the flame and let it simmer for 2-3 minutes. This will ensure that the jack fruit will be infused with masala. If you want more gravy, you can turn off the flame after simmering. But if you like it dry, bring it to a boil again and evaporate a little more water. Finish off with a teaspoon of ghee (clarified butter) and a teaspoon of Garam Masala Powder. The ghee bit is optional though.

That sounds delicious. Maybe we can add some chickens or goat or anykind of meat for more flavor. Anw, this is not a bad idea for vegetarian food :D
Thanks a lot.

I can say green jackfruit is very delicious, it has a unique almost meat like texture. My best friends mother cooks it with a variety of dishes.
Grow mainly fruits, vegetables, and herbs.

how long is it recommended to cook green jackfruit in any dish, do you have to boil it first before sauteing it.
