How to Prepare Tender Jackfruit
- To begin making the Raw Jackfruit Bhaaji, let us first cut the raw jackfruit. In order to do that we have to first, grease our hands and the knife that we are going to use, with some oil.
- This important tip ensures that the hands don't get sticky from the natural fruit latex/sap present in the fruit does not get onto your hands and makes the cutting process hassle-free.
- Keep a bowl of water mixed with some salt, ready to put the cut raw jackfruit pieces to avoid discolouration of the fruit.
- Now that your hands and knife are well greased, cut the the jackfruit in half, discard the skin and start making 1 inch pieces and soak them in the salted water.
- To start making the Raw Jackfruit Poriyal, place the jackfruit in a pressure cooker with 1/4 cup of water and pressure cook for 6 whistles and turn off the heat.
- Allow the pressure to release naturally. Drain any water from the jackfruit and set aside.
You can avoid all this hassle and effort but just cutting open Nutrinat’s Tender Jackfruit Pack and you are set.
