Tender raw jackfruit in pepper


My maiden attempt in making tender Raw Jackfruit more intresting 😊 however its one such vegetable which is versatile with which you can tryout many dishes and loved by many as its a great substitute to chicken or mutton ….

Today i made Kathal Pepper Roast adopting master chef Sanjeev Kapoors recipe of Mutton pepper roast recipe I saw this recipe today morning in his cookery show and thought why not substitute mutton for kathal / raw jackfruit and my idea worked it tasted awesome with flavours and spiciness of pepper  ….

So guys here is one more addition of recipe to our lovely veggie Kadgi / Kathal / raw jackfruit ….😍😍😍
