Gujje Podi (Tender Jackfruit Pakoda)

Ingredients to make Gujje Podi (Tender Jackfruit Pakoda)

  • ¼ medium (Approx 5 cups) Tender Jack Fruit, 2-3 inch pieces sliced into 1 cm thick pieces (Read notes)
  • oil for Deep frying
  • 2 cups Rice, washed and then soaked in water for 6 hours (I used Sona Masuri rice)
  • 8-10 Dry Red Chillies (adjust as per taste)
  • ½ tbsp jeera/Cumin Seeds
  • ¼ tsp Hing/asafoetida (Optional, but recommended)
  • salt to taste

How to make Gujje Podi (Tender Jackfruit Pakoda)

  1. Drain and reserve all the water from soaked rice. Grind the soaked rice with dry red chillies, cumin seeds, hind and salt to taste to smooth batter using enough water. The batter should be of thick pouring consistency.
  2. Heat oil in a large pan or wok on medium flame. Once the oil is hot, dip tender jackfruit slices into the spicy rice batter. Make sure that the piece is coated well before dropping it gently into the hot oil.
  3. Deep fry the pakodas in batches until they turn golden brown and crisp.
  4. Serve them immediately on its own with a cup of strong coffee or tea and enjoy!

My Tip:

Old newspapers are neatly spread to cover the floor from getting the floor stained from the white milky glue from tender jackfruits. Both the hands are oiled well for the same reason before cutting the tender jackfruits into two equal halves using the Met Katti. Then each halves are diced into large pieces before peeling the thorny green skins. Once you have peeled all the pieces, then we can proceed to cut them into thin slices or small pieces for cooking. The cut pieces of tender jackfruit is immersed in a large bowl of diluted buttermilk or just plain water to prevent them from changing the colour. To test if the oil is hot enough, drop few drops of batter into the hot oil. The batter should slowly float to the surface of the oil. If it sinks to the bottom and stays there, then the oil is not hot enough. If the batter quickly floats to the top as well as browns quickly, then the oil is too hot.
