Raw Jackfruit Kebab ( Kacchya Fansache Vade/Aambode)

Many recipes are made from raw jackfruit in our Konkan. I developed this recipe raw jackfruit. There is similar recipe in southern konkan, called "Aambode". I added raw jackfruit with some changes. 
It’s flavorful and unique treat for your friends. It is substitute for chicken.


  • Raw jackfruit, (peeled, boiled & shreaded)- 1 ½ cups
  • Spilt Bengal gram- ½ cup
  • Cumin seeds- 2 tsp
  • Coriander seeds- ¼ tsp
  • Green chilies- 6 to 8
  • Chopped fresh coriander leaves-  ½ cup
  • Corn flour- 2 tbsp
  • Turmeric powder- ½ tsp
  • Asafetida (Hing)-  ¼ tsp
  • Chat masala- 1 tsp
  • Dry mango powder (amchur)- ½ tsp
  • Salt- to taste
  • Oil to fry- around 2 tbsp

How to Prepare raw jackfruit , we have seen in last post (phanasachi bhaji).
Soak Bengal gram in water for 5 hours, drain.
Put jackfruit into food processer and grind coarsely without water, transfer to a bowl.

Put coriander seeds, cumin seeds, green chili, coriander leaves and spilt bengal gram into food processer and grind coarsely without water, transfer to a bowl.
Add turmeric , hing, aamchur, salt and conflour.

Knead with your hands and shape into small kebabs.
Shallow fry  them in a nonstick pan on simmer , using a little oil as required, until they are golden brown.  15 to 20 minutes required for this.
