Kathal Ke Kabab

Kathal or Raw Jackfruit is known as vegetarian meat because of its texture and look. It has lots of health benefits. This dish what I made today can be served as starter or appetiser or can be eaten as snacks. This can be served with onions and green chutney. It’s a simple recipe with very less ghee or oil. 

250 grams Raw Jackfruit (Kathal)  cut into medium size cubes and boiled
1/4 cup Chana Dal boiled without any excess water
1 small Onion finely chopped
1 - 2 Green Chillies as per required cut into pieces 
2 small pieces Ginger 
3 Garlic Cloves 
1 tbsp Coriander Leaves chopped
1 tbsp Mint Leaves  chopped
1/2 tsp Garam Masala Powder
1/2 tsp Chilli Powder
Salt to taste
1 tsp Cumin powder
1 tsp Fennel powder
1 tsp Coriander powder
1 tsp Lime juice 
Ghee or Oil for shallow frying


Take a food processor or a grinder. Add the boiled jack fruit, boiled chana dal,lime juice, green chillies, ginger, garlic, garam masala powder, fennel powder, chilli powder, salt, cumin powder and coriander powder.  Grind it into a coarse paste. Transfer the paste into a bowl. Add the onion, coriander leaves and mint leaves. Mix it well. Take a lime size portions of the paste and flatten it. Take a pan, add ghee or oil. Let it heat on a medium heat. Add the kababs into the ghee or oil. Shallow fry it on both the side until golden brown in colour. Serve the kababs with onion and green chutney

P.S. Don’t over cook the jackfruit and the chana dal. 
It’s better to use a food processor than a grinder as it takes a bit longer to grind in a grinder. Don’t add any water while grinding. 
I prefer ghee to fry the kababs as it enhances the flavour of the kababs.

Eggless Ripe Jackfruit Coconut and Semolina Loaf Cake....

Eggless Ripe Jackfruit Coconut and Semolina Loaf Cake....

Ripe Jackfruit is one of my favourite fruit. The flesh of the jackfruit is starchy and fibrous and is a source of dietary fiber. It has a strong and distinct aroma. Many dishes are made from the ripe jackfruit... Since my daughter likes to carry tea time cakes to school... Today I added some jackfruit and coconut along with semolina into the cake.

1 cup All Purpose Flour
1 cup Fine Semolina
1 cup Caster Sugar
2 tbsp Dessicated Coconut
1 tsp Baking powder
1 tsp Soda bicarbonate
3/4 cup Coconut Milk
4 tsp Curd
3/4  cup Olive oil
1/2 cup Jackfruit chopped

Take a mixing bowl. Add the curd, oil, coconut milk and sugar and jackfruit. In another bowl add flour, semolina, dessicated coconut, baking powder and soda bicarbonate. Mix it. Take a beater and beat the liquids till the sugar has dissolve. Gradually add half of the the dry ingredients and beat it. Add rest of the dry ingredients and beat it again. Pour the batter in a greased bread loaf tin. Tap the tin once. Sprinkle coconut on top. Bake it at 180 degrees celcius for 35 minutes in a preheated oven. Insert a toothpick to check. Cool it completely before cutting. Serve it with whip fresh cream or ice cream or just have it at tea time....
