About Echorer Kofta Curry (Green Jackfruit Kofta in Gravy - Bengali Style) Recipe

This humble veggie is a delicacy in most of the Bengali household. It is a bit time consuming but is worth it, as it tastes simply delicious, especially in the Kabab form. This can be relished with any chutney or sauce. Besides, it can be made into various types of dishes too. Today I prepared a traditional Bengali recipe of koftas cooked in a gravy form. You can enjoy either with rice or chapati.
