Green Jackfruit Rice/Panasapottu Rice/Raw Jackfruit Pulao

It has been a very very long time that we tasted the raw jackfruit.Recently when I went to Indian grocery store, I saw that they were having frozen Green JackFruit.I wasn't sure how it would be inside the pack but still bought it planning to make the famous Panasapottu Kura or Raw Jack Fruit Curry that is very famous in traditional vegetarian families in AndhraPradesh.

Few days after getting it ,I opened the pack and to my dismay the contents inside looked more like the fruit of the jackfruit than the light yellowish green chunks that I expected.Still planning to make the curry I thought I will use the mixie jar to pulse it into shreds.After pulsing the chunks in the mixie jar twice, they ended up mushy instead of shreds,this was not suitable for making the curry.So I pulsed it 2 more times and made a paste of it and changed my plans from making curry into rice dish.This Jackfruit rice turned out very tasty and we all enjoyed it.

Let's see how this delicious Green Jackfruit Rice/Pulao is made--------------


Main Ingredients :
----------------------
Raw Rice..........................2cups
Green Jackfruit..................1pkg(frozen)
Onion................................1
Green Chilly.......................3

Seasoning Ingredients :
----------------------------
Canola Oil..............................1.5tbsp

Cardamom.............................6
Peppercorns...........................10
Bay Leaf................................3
Paprika..................................1tsp
Cashewnuts............................1tbsp
Curry Leaves..........................few
Salt........................................to taste

Preparation :
--------------------
First cook the rice and keep it aside to cool down.Now take the frozen green jackfruit pieces and keep them outside.Once they are soft place them in a mixie jar and make a paste of it.In a plate take the seasoning ingredients like cumin, bayleaf, peppercorns, cloves, cardamom, cinnamon and nutmeg and keep them ready.


Now place a pan on the stove on high heat and add the oil.Once the oil heats up add the seasoning ingredients in the plate,chopped onion and slit green chillies and cashews to the pan and fry for 2 min or till cashews are golden and onions are translucent.
 

Make a paste of the ginger and garlic and add it to the cooked onions.Also add salt and paprika and fry the ingredients in the pan till the rawness of the ginger garlic paste is gone.

 

Now add the ground jackfruit paste to the pan.Mix the green jack fruit paste well with the seasoned ingredients in the pan so that all flavors blend in and fry for 2 minutes or till the raw smell is gone.


Once the raw jackfruit paste is well cooked add the curry leaves to it and give a stir.Finally add the cooked warm rice to the pan of seasoned jackfruit paste and mix well till all the rice gets coated with the mix.Adjust salt as needed(we already added some salt to the paste when we added paprika).


Very delicious and tasty Green Jackfruit Rice/Pulav is ready to be served.


We enjoyed this rice along with tomato and onion slices.Sure will make it again.
