Jackfruit Karahi

Jackfruit Karachi recipe image

I usually try to eat vegetarian or vegan during the week, but I was craving a delicious Indian style karahi. So I decided to experiment with making a typically meat based Indian dish vegan. The results are full of flavor!

Because I made this dish with jackfruit instead of meat the flavor profile was less rich and umami and a little more bright and citrusy, but it still hit the spot.

The great thing about this dish is that it only takes a few minutes to make making it perfect for a weeknight meal or to compliment other dishes like the Hyderabadi style vegetables that I actually also made on the same night.
