About Echore Kosha (Raw Jackfruit Curry - Bengali Style) Recipe

This is a typical Bengali style curry made with green jackfruit named Echore Kosha. It is almost a dry preparation with very little gravy and can be relished with plain steamed rice, pulao or chapatti / parathas. It also tastes yummy with some hot puris for a lazy sunday breakfast. This recipe is slow cooked in its own juices with just a sprinkle of some water.
