Next, add the onion paste and saute again for a minute or two. Now add tomato puree, salt, turmeric powder, red chilly powder,coriander-cumin powder, garam masala, dry mango powder and saute everything for two minutes. Now add water and let the gravy come to a boil. Then simmer for five minutes. Lastly, add the jackfruit tikkis and simmer again for three minutes before taking it off the flame.

Note points-–1. The jackfruit should be cut and blanched properly and also shallow fried well so that it is crispy and cooked at the same time.

2. Add 1 tsp of dry mango powder also along with tomato puree because it will give a better taste.

3. Add kasuri methi at the time of serving to enhance the taste.

Our Jackfruit Subzi is done. Garnish it with kasuri methi or chopped coriander. Serve it with roti, naans, paranthas or anything you wish like.
