Raw Jackfruit Stir fry

Posted on Updated on

For those of you who are not familiar, Kadgi is Raw jack/Halsinkayi. I have already put up the popular Konkani dish Kadge Chakko, a coconut based gravy dish, Jackfruit Dosa, Jackfruit Sweet Idlis and Jackfruit Pudding. What I am putting up today though is a stir fry and hence a much simpler dish. It should take less than 25 mins if you have cut jackfruit ready.

What you need to have:

1. Chopped  raw jack – 1 cup

2. Chopped Tomato – 1 Tablespoon

3. Chopped onions – 2 Tablespoons

4. Chopped garlic pods – 1/2 Teaspoon

5. Chilli powder – 1 Teaspoon

6. Turmeric powder – 1 Teaspoon

7. Dhania-jeera powder – 1 Teaspoon

8. Cumin seeds – 1 Teaspoon

9. Chopped coriander leaves – A handful

10. Cooking oil – 1 Tablespoon

What you do with what you have:

1. Cut, peal raw jack and chop fine as shown in the images 1, 2, and 3. Wash, peal and chop onions and garlic pods fine. Also wash and chop tomatoes, coriander leaves fine as shown in image 4 and keep it aside.

2. Cook chopped jack in the cooker adding little salt till done. (Cooked raw jack is as shown with the ingredients in the  above image.)

3. Place a skillet with 3-4 teaspoons of cooking oil in it on medium flame. On heating add cumin seeds to it. When it sputters add  chopped garlic pods from step 1 to it and fry till done. Add chopped tomatoes to it and when it turns mushy , add chopped onions also from step-1 to it together with salt required to the dish and stir well. When it turns transparent, add turmeric powder, Dhania-jeera powder, chilli powder one after the other.

Seasoning in progress

4. Stir in cooked jack from step-2 to it and mix well.

      Hi Haseena,

      This is an easy recipe for the starters as well with the frozen Raw jack.

    ooohhh. The site of kadgi is making me drool. Have never had stir fry though. I have eaten phodi, chakko and adgayee….
    Is tomato a must in this? I have come across hardly any konkani recipes with tomatoes…

      Hi Varsha,

      I have tried it with tomato and with all combinations it tastes great i feel and is a good combo with Dalithoy and Chapati as well!!!! Adgayee is also my favorite and will put up in the next season.
