Jackfruit sabzi (Kathal)

This vegetarian dish is as close it gets to being non vegetarian! Oh yes, it is Jackfruit curry/ Kathal ki sabzi
This meaty bite like kathal ki sabzi is so satisfying, that you will remember its taste for long long time.
I almost forgot about it until my friend Nisha reminded me of it! All thanks to her mom's yummy preparation that I decided to prepare it again.
