BM #104 Day 10 - 

Another unique recipe from the state of Odisha using Raw Jackfruit. I understand that the use of raw jackfruit is very unique to certain regions of India.

When we lived in Assam in the later half of  70's, I remember we had a huge jackfruit tree in our yard. But my parents weren't too keen on the jackfruit and would always gift it to our neighbors. Even today, I am sure my parents don't have any particular affinity to the fruit. 

But I have recently grown to admire this fruit in quite a few recipes both raw and as a fruit. So when Aunty mentioned a cutlet with raw jackfruit, I immediately tried it out and we loved the flavor immensely.

Ingredients - 

*Raw Jackfruit shredded 2 cups
Potato , boiled 1 cup (I medium sized)
Bread Crumbs 1 cup
Salt, Red Chili Powder, Green Chili, Ginger, Garlic as needed
Amchur Powder 1 tsp (Or fresh grated raw mango 1 Tbsp)
Chaat Masala 1 tsp
Dhania Powder 1/2 tsp
Jeera Powder 1/2 tsp
Garam Masala 1/2 tsp
Onion finely chopped 1/2 cup
Peanuts, roasted and coarsely crushed 1/4 cup
Oil to shallow fry as needed
(Traditionally Mustard oil is used but I have used Coconut oil)

*I have used frozen shredded raw jackfruit. If using fresh raw jackfruit, chop and pressure cook along with salt and turmeric and use in the recipe.

Method Of Preparation -

Thaw the frozen jackfruit. I microwaved for 5 minutes and mashed it in a processor.

Peel and boil potato and mash. set aside.

Pulse the bread slices to make crumbs.

In a mixing bowl, add the mashed jackfruit, mashed potato, salt, turmeric, finely chopped green chili, grated ginger, grated garlic, red chili powder, dhania powder, jeera powder, garam masala, chaat masala, amchur powder, coarsely crushed peanuts and bread crumbs.

Knead the mixture well and form a stiff dough. If the dough happens to be runny, add some gram flour (which I didn't have to add).

Pinch equal sized portions (12-14) of the mixture, pat them into thick discs and shallow fry until they are golden brown on both sides.

  2. Yes, agreed that this is surely a unique snack to make. My Bihari colleague used to talk about the kathal biryani and gravy that they make often, so more than us, they are used to the unripe fruit as such. This is a good find.
