When the jackfruit season is in, everybody clamours for the fruit, but only the wise know the value of the raw form!

Raw jackfruit has a rustic taste, which if handled properly gives rise to many wondrous recipes. While many people use the kathal to make subzis, we offer you yet another choice – the Jackfruit Kofta Curry.

The kofta has a very different mouth-feel because of the texture of the jackfruit. These unique but tasty koftas are then used to make a delicious curry that is perked up with a range of spice powders in perfect proportions.

The different texture and peppy flavour of the curry is really uplifting and will make your meal a memorable one.
