How I used raw jackfruit as vegan meat to make #kebabs💚
Another food that I grew up eating was jackfruit both raw and ripe. Mom used to make raw jackfruit Sukka, jackfruit curry with dry fish/ shrimp and jackfruit fry.
The ripe jackfruit was had as it is or jackfruit appam’s were another favourite at our home.
Since I have been doing a lot of South Indian traditional cooking off late, I wanted to try my hands on a north indian dish using this tender baby jackfruit!
Raw jackfruit kebab it was. I cannot tell you how simple this recipe was to make and yet the most yummiest. The best part is the texture and flavour was so freaking similar to meat.
Recipe for making Vegan Raw Jackfruit kebab.
1 small tender jackfruit under 500gms cut into small pieces and pressure cook for 2 whistles. Drain moisture completely, mash and keep aside.
In a pan take 1tbsp oil and roast 1/4 cup besan / gramflour, 1tsp jeera, 2tsp chilli powder, 1/2 tsp garam masala powder, 2tsp corriander powder, 1tsp jeera powder, pinch of hing, 1/2 tsp kasturi methi, 1tsp Ginger paste and 2 green chillies chopped. When all the above Masala’s are roasted well on low flame (Take care not to brown it) switch off the fire. Add the mashed jackfruit, salt and amchur powder/ dry mango powder. Mix well and shape them to kebabs. Shallow fry the kebabs in oil, butter or ghee. If you are going vegan use coconut oil.
