Recipe
1
Cut 500 grams of tender jackfruit into small bite-sized pieces and wash them thoroughly. Boil the jackfruit pieces in water with a pinch of salt for 10-15 minutes until they become soft. Drain the water and keep the jackfruit aside.
2
In a mixing bowl, add 200 grams of gram flour (besan), 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder, 1/2 teaspoon garam masala, 1/2 teaspoon ajwain (carom seeds), a pinch of asafoetida (hing), salt to taste, and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda. Mix all the ingredients well.
3
Gradually add water to the dry mixture and whisk it to form a smooth, thick batter. Ensure there are no lumps in the batter.
4
Heat oil in a deep frying pan or kadai for deep frying. Once the oil is hot, dip the boiled jackfruit pieces in the prepared batter, ensuring they are well coated.
5
Carefully drop the batter-coated jackfruit pieces into the hot oil and deep fry them on medium heat until they turn golden brown and crispy. Keep turning the pakoras occasionally for even cooking.
6
Once the kathal pakoras are ready, remove them from the oil using a slotted spoon and place them on a paper towel to absorb excess oil.
7
Serve the kathal pakoras hot with green chutney or tomato ketchup.
