Jack as Tikki

This dish was actually a makeshift arrangement done for raw jack fruit poriyal. I was intending to do the poriyal. And in the process I actually found that I made it a little extra tender and my folks at home wouldn't go for it. Now enough of the prelude and let me just straight go into the recipe.

Raw Jack Fruit - one medium sized
Onions - 2 ( 1 finely chopped)
Tomato - 1
Green Chillies -2
green coriander - 1 cup (finely chopped)
Ginger- Garlic Paste - 1 tsp
Chilli powder - 2 tsp
Garam Masala -1 tsp
Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp
Gram Flour - 1/2 cup
Corn Flour - 3 tsp
Salt - to taste
Bread Crumbs

In a pressure cooker boil the deskinned and cubed raw jack fruit with turmeric powder, half of the chilli powder, and little salt. One whistle should do as the tendency of the jack fruit is to cook faster. In a pan add oil and saute the onions, ginger garlic paste and tomatoes. Add the powders as well. When everything is mixed and comes to a thick dough like consistency remove from fire and add the gram flour, corn flour, finely chopped onions and coriander leaves. Now make this into a ball and flatten it and coat it with bread crumbs and using a tava or a sauce pan roast it on both sides till golden brown adding oil. You definitely will need two ladles to toss it. Let me know if tasted good at your place as well. Mine did and made me post it quite after a very long time!!! Hoping to be back soon with something more exciting!!!
