  • 4 to 6 tablespoons oil, for cooking
  • 500 grams kathal (jackfruit), chopped
  • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, grated
  • 3 tomatoes, pureed
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chilli powder
  • 1 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Heat 2 to 3 tablespoons oil in a wok and fry the kathal till it just changes colour. Do not over-fry them or else it will become too soft.
  2. Remove the oil from the wok. Add 2 to 3 tablespoons fresh oil and heat it on high heat.
  3. Once the oil is hot, add onions and saute for 5 to 7 minutes till they are light brown.
  4. Add the grated garlic and saute until it turns medium-brown.
  5. Add the tomato puree and stir. Add all spices and salt. Stir well.
  6. Add the fried kathal back to the wok. Reduce heat to low. Mix well and cover with a lid. Let it cook.
  7. Check every 3 to 4 minutes. Stir and cover again. Continue this process until the kathal is fully cooked.
