Jackfruit shahi kofta curry|Kathal ke kofte, a good option of meat for vegetarians

A very good option of meat for vegetarians, jackfruit Kofta curry is something very different and a must try. It is different from run of the mill Malai koftas.

The shahi gravy is prepared using saffron, coconut milk, broken wheat /dalia powder nd cashew nuts.

Whereas jackfruit koftas are made with jackfruit, besan/gram flour(no potatoes) and some regular spices.

The best thing about these koftas, it can be prepped and refrigerated the day before and can be fried just before serving. In addition to that, you can serve them as starters to your guests, by making it of a smaller size.

    I’m not a big fan of jackfruit and cannot stand the smell of the ripe one. Having said that I had the opportunity to try raw jackfruit Thai curry during my visit to Thailand and loved it. Jackfruit Shahi Kofta Curry looks so tempting. I’d love to try this recipe out whenever I get raw jackfruit.

    I grew up in Northern India and that is where I first experienced eating raw jackfruit. It became my absolute favorite and look forward to eating it again and again. I have not tasted the koftas and I am tempted to give these a try. I might try to make it with the canned ones that we get here.

    1. Lata Lala

      The kofta curry is worth trying.
