You would have surely had cutlets made of potatoes and even Jain -friendly cutlets made with raw bananas or mixed veggies, but have you ever had cutlets made of raw jackfruit?

This traditional delicacy from Bengal has a unique taste, which is delicious in its own rustic way. The jackfruit is combined with potatoes for binding and lots of masaledar ingredients for getting a great taste.

A coating of bread crumbs gives the Bengali Style Jackfruit Cutlet a fascinating texture that is sure to please you.Although the ingredients are many, they are commonly available in your kitchen, so you don’t need to plan too much before making this delicious treat.

Enjoy it hot and fresh with chutneys of your choice. You can also try other Bengali dishes like Palak Til Jowar Nimki and Paneer Bhapa .
