About Kathal Ka Bharta Recipe

Everyone is pretty familiar with Baingan Ka Bharta (Mashed Eggplants) which is a very popular Punjabi dish. But today I gave a slight twist to the original recipe and decided to try out with raw jackfruit (kathal). To add more flavour to the dish, I added some chopped coriander and mint leaves to the end product and it turned out simply delicious. You can relish it as a side dish with rice, chapattis, naan or tandoori roti.
