How to make Steamed Green Jackfruit in Poppy Seed Gravy / Bhapa Enchor Posto

  1. Cut the raw or green jackfruit into dice shaped pieces. Put them in a pressure cooker (with 2 cups of water) for 2 to 3 whistles. Do not forget to add little salt while boiling them.
  2. Once the pressure is released, drain the water and allow them to cool.
  3. Now take a round shape tiffin box which perfectly goes inside your pressure cooker and you can close the lid of the cooker.
  4. In a bowl take poppy seed paste, mustard paste, turmeric powder, sugar & salt and mix them well.
  5. Add 1 tablespoon water into the mixture. Place the boiled jackfruit pieces into the tiffin box and pour the prepared mixture into the box.
  6. Add green chilli, bay leaf, lime juice and mustard oil from top and close the lid of the box.
  7. Now take 2 cups water in your pressure cooker and place the tiffin box inside it.
  8. Wait for 2 to 3 whistles and switch off the gas.
  9. Allow to release the pressure and take out the tiffin box carefully and serve lovely steamed jackfruit in poppy seed gravy with plain rice.

My Tip:

If you do not have a bigger pressure cooker where the tiffin box goes inside then you can pour water in a wok and place the tiffin box and cover the wok using a lid. Cook it under medium flame for 15 to 20 minutes.
