jackfruit biriyani recipe | kathal biriyani | raw & tender kathal ki biryani with step by step photo and video recipe. we all know the history of biriyani and its closeness to the types of meat used to cook it. yet there are so many veg alternatives to this popular dish with different types of vegetables and vegetarian ingredients. however, there is some meat alternative biriyani too and the jackfruit biriyani recipe is one such easy and simple mutton biriyani alternative.

well, to begin with, i am a huge fan of biriyani and perhaps we have the vegetarian biriyani almost every week. previously, we use to explore various nearby restaurants for an authentic dum biriyani. but we have stopped now as we were not getting that authentic and real biriyani. in short, we have come to a conclusion that the homemade biryani’s are much better in taste and health and hence better of making at home. this has lead to exploring more types of veg biriyani options and the recent addition is the kathal biriyani. to be honest, i am not sure how a meat biriyani tastes like, but for me, this has to something similar to a meat variant. particularly, the tender jackfruit slices do have striking similarities to the meat variant. hence i would recommend trying this, especially if you are a meat eater and like to explore some meat alternatives.

furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variants to the jackfruit biriyani recipe. firstly, in this recipe, i have shown a combination of jackfruit and mixed vegetables. i personally like it that way, yet you may prepare with just tender jackfruit slices. in that case, you may have to double the quantity. secondly, do not ever try this recipe with sweet or ripe jackfruit slices. it would spoil the taste and moreover, it would reduce the spice heat of the biriyani flavour. lastly, the combination of jackfruit and mixed vegetables has to be marinated thoroughly. in addition, while you marinate, you may feel the taste very spicy, but it would reduce gradually once it is properly rested.
