When jackfruit is in season, you see not only the pulpy fruit but also the small, raw vegetables in the market.
While some people are familiar with the traditional methods of preparing such rare and seasonal veggies, others are curious.
This recipe gives you a quick and easy way to enjoy raw jackfruit. The vegetable is combined with commonly-available spices, spice powders and other ingredients like onions, tomatoes, ginger, and so on, and pressure-cooked.
It is important to continue cooking the Kathal ki Subzi for a few minutes after pressure cooking, for the raw smell to go. Kathal has a unique texture, which makes this curry really fascinating.
Enjoy it hot and fresh with dal and an Indian bread . You can try serving it with Whole Wheat Coriander and Sesame Seeds Naan and Dal Moghlai .
