1 cup raw jackfruit, boiled and mashed
1 large potato, boiled and mashed
2 onions, finely chopped
2 green chilies, finely chopped
2 tablespoons ginger-garlic paste
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1 teaspoon coriander powder
1 teaspoon garam masala powder
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/2 cup bread crumbs or roasted chickpea flour (besan)
Salt to taste
2 tablespoons fresh coriander leaves, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh mint leaves, chopped
2 tablespoons oil for cooking

Yogurt or mint chutney for serving


In a mixing bowl, combine the boiled and mashed jackfruit, boiled and mashed potato, chopped onions, chopped green chilies, ginger-garlic paste, cumin powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder, turmeric powder, bread crumbs or roasted chickpea flour, salt, chopped coriander leaves, and chopped mint leaves. Mix well to form a smooth mixture.

Divide the mixture into equal-sized portions and shape them into round patties or oval-shaped kebabs.Heat oil in a non-stick pan or on a griddle over medium heat.

Once the oil is hot, place the kebabs on the pan or griddle and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until they are golden brown and crispy.

Once cooked, remove the kebabs from the pan and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess oil.

Serve the Jackfruit Galouti Kababs hot with yogurt or mint chutney.

Healthy Tips:

Use minimal oil: Instead of deep-frying the kababs, opt for shallow frying or grilling them with minimal oil to reduce the overall fat content.

Choose whole wheat bread crumbs: If using bread crumbs, opt for whole wheat bread crumbs for added fiber and nutrients.

Add vegetables: Incorporate finely chopped vegetables like carrots, bell peppers, or spinach into the kabab mixture to increase its nutritional value and fiber content.

Control portion size: While jackfruit is nutritious, it’s important to control portion sizes to manage calorie intake. Enjoy the kababs as part of a balanced meal with plenty of vegetables.
Serve with healthy accompaniments: Pair the kababs with yogurt-based dips or chutneys made with fresh herbs and spices for added flavor without extra calories.

By following these tips and enjoying the Jackfruit Galouti Kababs in moderation as part of a balanced diet, you can indulge in a delicious and nutritious meal.
