Tender raw Jack fruit, called Panasa Katha in Odia and Kathal in Hindi, is an exotic vegetable considered as vegetarian meat because of its meat like texture and flavour. The tender Jack fruit is used to prepare curries, Dalma, cutlets, kababs and biryani. This particular fruit is abundantly found in almost every second home in Odisha and my childhood memories associated with this fruit is the exchange of home grown vegetables and fruits were very common and Jack fruit featured quite commonly in that exchange.
