KATHAL BIRYANI (JACKFRUIT FRIED RICE)


Here comes another Biryani (also see egg biryani). My mother is an expert of this dish and she only taught me how to make it. This is one of the most delicious vegetarian biryanis. To be honest, I am a vegetarian at heart. Now, because of my loving husband I have already tried almost every kind of meat. In turn, I also had quite an effect on him. Earlier, for him, a meal without meat was a fiasco. But, now he has started loving vegetarian substitutes and this dish is one of his ‘vegetarian yet delicious’ favorites. While I was in India, I used to prepare it occasionally, but after coming to USA I could not make it as I couldn’t find jackfruit anywhere. Recently, I went to a Chinese market with a friend and to my surprise, I found fresh as well as canned jackfruit. Wow! Yesterday, I tried this dish.

Ask me please… was it tasty or was it tasty!!! Actually, it was great!!

Serving: 4

Cooking time: 50-60 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

  1. 1 can green jackfruit (drained weight 250 gm) - cut in to bite size
  2. 1 cup non-fat yogurt (curd)
  3. Garlic paste-1 tbsp
  4. Ginger paste-1 tbsp
  5. Cloves-4
  6. Green cardamom-4
  7. Cinnamon stick-1 (1 inch)
  8. Bay leaf-1
  9. Cumin seeds-1 tsp
  10. Coriander powder-1 ½ tbsp
  11. Cumin powder-1 tsp
  12. Turmeric powder-1 tsp
  13. A pinch of Saffron (soaked in water)
  14. Red chili powder-1 tbsp
  15. Garam masala-1 tsp
  16. Chopped coriander leaves-1 tbsp
  17. 1 large onion (roughly chopped)
  18. 1 medium tomato (chopped)
  19. 1 medium size red onion (cut in to slices)
  20. 4 tbsp butter/ghee/olive oil
  21. 4-5 tbsp olive oil/vegetable oil
  22. 8-10-cashew nuts
  23. 8-10- dry grapes
  24. 8-10-almonds
  25. 1 ½ cups white basmati rice (soaked in water for 1 hr)
  26. Salt to taste

METHOD:

  1. Drain water from soaked rice in a colander and let it be in it for 20 minutes. Now place the rice in a heavy bottomed vessel with 2 ½ cups of water, 1/2 tbsp of salt and few drops of oil. Cover it and bring to boil over high heat. Uncover it and cook without stirring on medium heat for about 7-8 min or until rice becomes just tender (take a few grains and chew them. Are they cooked??). Remember, rice should not be overcooked otherwise rice grains won’t remain separated from each other. Turn off the stove and cover it.
  2. Now heat a pan with 2 tbsp oil. Add jackfruit pieces and sauté them for 10 min on medium heat. (Traditionally, we should deep fry the jackfruit pieces, but I prefer to sauté them for health reasons.) Turn off the stove.
  3. Take a bowl and place sautéed jackfruit, yogurt, cumin powder, bay leaf, garam masala powder, 2 cardamom pods, 2 cloves and garlic-ginger paste in it. Mix them well and keep this bowl in refrigerator for 1-2 hr for marinating jackfruit.


  4. After that, heat a pan with 3 tbsp of olive oil. Add cumin seeds, 2 cardamom pods, 2 cloves and cinnamon stick. When they crackle, add coarsely chopped onion and salt. Fry on medium heat until onions turn translucent. Now add chopped tomato and fry for another 2-3 min on medium heat. After that, add marinated jackfruit, turmeric powder, red chili powder, coriander powder and mix well. Fry them for 4-5 min on medium high heat and stir occasionally. Add 1 cup of water and cook till jackfruit pieces get cooked and become tender. Turn off the stove.


  5. Again heat a pan with butter/ghee/oil. Add cashews, dry grapes & almonds and fry them for 1 min on medium heat. Now add red onion slices and sauté them till they turn to golden brown. Remove this pan from heat.


  6. After that, take a heavy bottomed pot. Spread a layer of nuts and onion mixture (1/3 of the mixture prepared in the previous step) in it. Now, spread a layer of cooked rice (1/3 of total rice) over it and sprinkle saffron water. After that, spread 1/3 of jackfruit mixture prepared in 4th step. Repeat this procedure for rest of the nuts & onion mixture, rice, saffron water and jackfruit mixture.
  7. Cover the pot with lid and cook on low heat for 25-30 min or until steam starts coming out of the lid. Turn off the stove.
  8. Place it in serving dish or bowl. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve with raita.
