Jackfruit/Kathal Pakora (Jackfruit Fritters)

Jackfruit/Kathal Pakora (Jackfruit Fritters)

One fine evening I did not have anything to have with tea!Marie biscuits had got over and I had a late brunch after which I was terribly hungry.I had prepped and boiled Jackfruit which I had stashed away in the refrigerator and that plus Kanda Bajji (Onion Pakoras) came to my mind!I thought of mixing both and making Pakoras.This turned out to be a super success so that I prepared my camera and took pics for all of you to know this surprisingly easy process as well.

I have mentioned in a previous post on how to prep Jackfruit and I will be inserting the link in the “INGREDIENTS” list.Serve this with hot tea.Nothing better than that!

Preparation Time : 30 minutes

Makes : 20 Pakoras


2 cups prepped Raw Jackfruit – mashed coarsely

(For instructions on how to prep the Jackfruit check the link here :


1 big/2 small Onions – thinly sliced

1/2 cup Gram Flour/Garbanzo Bean Flour (Besan)

2 tsp salt

2 tsp Kashmiri Red Chilli Powder

1 tsp Turmeric Powder

1 tsp Chaat Masala

Oil to fry


Take the sliced Onions in a bowl and sprinkle over 1 tsp salt,chilli powder and turmeric.Keep covered for 10 minutes till the Onions ooze out their water.

Add the mashed Jackfruit,the remaining 1 tsp salt and the gram flour.Mix well till thoroughly combined.

Heat Oil and when sufficiently hot,drop mixture gently in the hot oil.Fry the Pakoras on medium heat till golden brown and slightly crisp.Remove on absorbent paper.

Serve warm with Tomato Ketchup,Green Coriander Chutney and Sweet Tamarind Chutney.

Served with Green Coriander Chutney and Tamarind Chutney….
