This spicy Green Jackfruit Curry is a great side dish with either rice or chapattis. I have added some store bought Maggi bhuna masala, that I purchased during my recent visit to India. Along with it went some tomato ketchup and a fair amount of red chili powder as I wanted it really spicy.
To cut down the spicyness and make it more chatpata and tangy, just add a dash of lime. It really tastes yummy and delicious. I prepared it dry but if some gravy is needed, add required amount of water. Please find below a step by step guide to prepare it.
