Next time you spot a raw jackfruit in the market, bring it home and try this spicy dry subzi. This Kathal Dry Subzi takes a little bit of time to prepare but it is completely worth the effort, because your family will go gaga over it!
The first and most critical step in preparing this subzi is to deep-fry the kathal. It is important to fry it really crisp in order to get this masaledar subzi right.
The crispy fried kathal is then sautéed with onions, tomatoes and a special paste of roasted spices, seeds and coconut. The crunch of the kathal together with the tongue-tickling flavour of this paste and the juiciness of tomatoes and onions makes this subzi a special treat, which everybody will love.
Enjoy it immediately after preparation with roti or parathas. Have a go at other jackfruit surprises like the Jackfruit Curry and Jackfruit Cutlet .
