Today sharing one delicious vegetarian recipe which is very tasty and grand too. It is really a nice choice for any home party or vegetarian party. This dish I hardly prepared because as it is little time consuming. But who cares if it is worthy to serve for any guests. But I am sure you will love it as it is rich in taste and texture. A shahi delicacy will be watering your mouth.  This goes very well with plain rice and chapathi too.
So try this recipe within this season as raw jackfruit is now easily available in market.

As per nutrition value raw jackfruit consists of high level of vitamin C,Vitamin A,iron and calcium too. It is cholesterol free too. So more or less it is healthy too.
