Here's how you can make 'jackfruit pickle' in just five easy steps at home.
Jackfruit, or kathal/vegetarian mutton, is eaten as a vegetable and fruit. This seasonal vegetable available during the summer is mainly used in the Northern part of India, whereas it is enjoyed as a fruit in India's Southern and Eastern regions. Do you know that many desserts and sweets are made with kathal? Having cultivated in rainy, tropical humid areas, jackfruit is known to have antioxidant properties. It is rich in Vitamin B, C, A, dietary fibre and a good amount of iron, magnesium and potassium. You can also create yummy, filling feasts from this meaty vegetable such as kathal biryani, kathal ka achar, jackfruit ki sabzi or kathal curry. However, pickling is a fantastic method to have it even non-season. You can make this achaar in the brine. However, the canned one is easier as it's already cut into pieces.
This jackfruit pickle or kathal ka achaar is my nani's speciality. So do try this delicious recipe.
