Jackfruit Biryani is the delusional biryani for the vegetarians, as the jackfruit looks like the meat when cooked and served in the form of biryani. So the vegs can be happy with this thought. 😉
Raw Jackfruit cut into cubes 1 kg, ginger garlic paste 3 tabsp, fried onion + roasted dried coconut paste 2 tabsp, thick curds 2 tabsp, cream 2 tabsp, turmeric powder 2 tsp, chili powder 3 tsp, coriander cumin seeds powder 3 tsp, garam masala 2 to 3 tsp, chat masala 2 tsp, bayleaves 2 to 3, lemon 2 whole, salt to taste and oil 6 tabsp. Basmati rice 3/4 kg. Fried onions 250 grms, tomato cut into circles 1 large, milk 1 cup mixed with saffron 2 pinches, cardamom powder 2 tsp and ghee 4 tabsp. Coriander leaves chopped 2 tabsp.
Boil 3 to 4 litres of water add little salt and half cook the rice. Now drain the water and put the half boiled rice into a strainer and keep it aside.
Now in a frying pan, heat oil and shallow fry the jackfruit till it changes colour. Now drain off the excess oil and marinate it with ginger garlic, fried onion coconut pastes, curds, cream, all the dry spices, lemon, salt and add 150 grams of fried onions. Mix all the ingredients.
Now take a flat deep and heavy bottom pan, and set a layer of the marinated jackfruit. Now add a layer of rice, spread evenly over the jackfruit. Now top the rice with the saffron milk, cardamom, fried onions and slices of tomato. Now pour the ghee all over this biryani and seal it with a foil. Keep on low flame for 40 to 45 mins. Serve hot with raita and garnish with coriander leaves.
Njoy this delusional vegetarian biryani !!! 🙂
