Today i have an exotic , flavorful , delicious pulao made from a seasonal veggie – Raw jack fruit . Hearing about my today’s dish my mom’s first reaction was ” Pulao ? !!! Out of jack fruit ..!!! ?? “.I know most of the South Indian’s would react the same way hearing it . I too hadn’t tasted Raw Jackfruit Pulav ever but when i did .. i just loved this royal dish to the core. It’s very famous in Northern part of India as ” Kathal Pulao / Kathal Ki Biryani ” . Raw jackfruit cooked in an aromatic masala and garnished with freshly squeezed lemon juice and loads of fresh coriander leaves…. Ahh… Can you get the aroma?? I can still feel its tempting texture and flavor. !! 🙂
It so happens that whenever i get my hands on raw jackfruit , i normally end up making all the traditional authentic stuff that i had grown up eating . But this time , the blogger in me decided to try something new .After making Raw jackfruit sambar , i kept aside another half for my experimentation. Did some googling … striked off all sambars, currys,stir fries from it … was left with kabab or Pulao / Biriyani and Finally my hubby suggested i should make pulao out of it .But after a lot of recipe hunting, i did not find anything easy and healthy.. Most of the sites had quite lengthy cooking method , with long ingredient list and i was in no mood for hard work ( grind – marinate – cook – mix ) . When i did not find any apt recipe and it was almost lunch time, Finally i gave up … mixed n matched few recipes and came up with my version of ” easy One pot pressure cooker method of making Raw Jackfruit Pulav ” . The whole process excluding jackfruit chopping did not take me more than half hour in all. And the end result was so so awesome.. had crossed all my expectations … the jackfruit was so well cooked taking in all the flavors ..we all loved it so much. My husband loved it so much that he actually praised at least 5 times while enjoying it .Anyhow i was very happy to have got this easy yummy recipe and that is the reason why i am sharing with you.. Do try it once and i am sure you will not forget the flavor of this wonderful rice..
