Jackfruit or fanas (Marathi) is a summer favorite. Every region in India has their own way of cooking this meaty vegetable, called katahal in Hindi and echorer in Bengali. This Jackfruit Curry or Jackfruit Masala is actually a fake Mutton Masala, with the kind of spice paste typically used to make a meat curry. With the unique texture of jackfruit, this looks and tastes like meat alright, but the recipe is 100% vegan. This particular spice paste is so yum you’ll be licking your fingers, promise. It is much different from the same old onion-tomato gravy that Indian food is largely associated with. So trust the recipe and try making this sometime.
