Tender/Raw jackfruit/Kathal gravy is definitely different gravy that goes well with rice/ chapatti. I am a big fan of jackfruit. In our house we are having a very old tree which gives really delicious sweet jackfruits. Before I have never tried any recipe using the tender/raw jackfruit. I even don’t know that we can use this young jackfruit also for cooking. Then few weeks before while seeing the jackfruit in vegetable section I brought and tried this kuzhambu/gravy.

It really tastes yummy with rice. So now I got one more alternative kuzhambu to serve with rice instead of regular sambhar/more kuzhambu varieties.

NOTES:
While cut the jackfruit apply little oil in your hands to avoid the sticking of milk comes from the jackfruit.
Use tender jackfruit to get nice soft and juicy pieces.
As we have already added some salt while cooking jack fruit, add little salt to the gravy and check.
Check the water consistency and mix the gravy in between while boiling to avoid burning.
