The Mustard Masala Jackfruit is a spicy preparation that totally masks the raw flavour of jackfruit and turns it into a fiery, tongue-tickling delicacy!

A must-try for spice lovers, this recipe flavours raw jackfruit with a special masala of mustard and red chillies. It is the mustard that gives this dish its characteristic taste, which is not just spicy but pungent in a unique way.

It leaves your palate warm with the heat of the chillies and mustard. Although simple and traditional, the tempering of mustard seeds and urad adds a rich aroma and nice crunch to this flavour-packed treat.

Enjoy it with rice or rotis . You can also have a go at other jackfruit recipes like Jackfruit Curry and Kathal ki Subzi .
