Raw Jackfruit Curry [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan


  • 500 grams raw jackfruit
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1/2 tablespoon ginger-garlic paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 2 green chilis, chopped
  • 4 cloves
  • 1/4 cinnamon stick
  • 1 maratha moggu (optional)
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 3 teaspoons coriander powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper powder, plus more if needed
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice


  1. Apply coconut oil over your hands and knife. Remove the skin and cut jackfruit into small pieces. Put those pieces in water to avoid brown coloring. Heat a pressure cooker and add washed jackfruit pieces along with a little salt and turmeric powder. Pour enough water until the pieces are submerged.
  2. Close the lid and pressure cook on low-medium flame for 1 whistle. Remove from the heat and let the pressure settle down. Drain the water completely and keep the cooked pieces aside.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a pan. Add cloves, cinnamon, bay leaf, and maratha moggu. Add chopped onions and green chilis. Sauté for a bit. Add tomatoes and mash the pulp. Add ginger-garlic paste and stir well. Add cooked jackfruit and stir.
  4. Add pepper powder, cumin powder, and coriander powder. Stir well everything. Add salt to taste and cook it covered for 10-15 minutes. Sprinkle lemon juice and remove from the heat. Serve hot.

And what do you mean by "cook for one whistle"? My pressure cooker doesn\'t whistle; it\'s a new electric Instant Pot pressure cooker.

Can this be made with "green" canned jackfruit, rinsed well and drained?

Downloaded the app, but you only give recipe ingredients, and no instructions. If you want instructions to the recipes need to pay subscription, but can view the recipe online. Just don't make sense! What's the point of having an app? I'll just carry on going online for full recipes. .
