About Echore Muri Ghonto (Raw Jackfruit cooked with Basmati Rice - Bengali style) Recipe

Muri Ghonto or Fish Head Curry is a traditional Bengali cuisine prepared with fish head, some soaked rice along with the usual spices into a thick gravy. The quantity of rice can be adjusted according to individual preference. It can be made into a curry form or a pulao. But here is a vegetarian version of the said dish with green jackfruit. This is a very good combination and it also goes by the name of Jackfruit Pulao, where the rice happens to be the predominant ingredient. But I used slightly less as I wanted to prepare into a curry form. If making a pulao increase the quantity of rice and cook it in ghee. Traditionally it is prepared with a local rice variety called Gobindo Bhog, but in the absence of it you can make do with any Basmati rice. The curry form can be enjoyed with either rice or chapattis.
