Echorer Dalna/Raw jack fruit curry

After 'Echorer Torkari', my 1st  post on  jackfruit  became so popular, I thought of making some other experiment with that and finally I ended up in making the delicious dish  called 'Echorer Dalna'. It is a completely vegeterian recipe made of raw jackfruit which doesnt contain even onion and garlic which is considerd as a part of nonveg in bengal. It is basically a raw jack fruit curry cooked in a thin gravy which goes very well as a side dish with roti and chapatti. Here I made some variation adding chickpeas(green peas) to that which made more delicious. You can prepare it in both versions.


500 gms
1 cut into cubes
Chickpea (green peas)
1 cup
Red chili
1 tsp
Ginger paste
2 tbsp
Green chili paste
1 tbsp
Turmeric powder
Roasted Cumin powder
1 tsp
Roasted coriander powder
1 tsp
Red chili powder
1 tsp
Garam masala powder
1 tsp


1. Clean jack fruit and wash it properly. Take all the pieces in a large pan and add 1/2 cup of water and a tsp of salt. Boil it for about 6 to7 minutes. Drain out excess water and keep aside.

2. Heat oil in a pan and fry potato pieces until soft and golden in color. Keep it aside. Boil chichkpea soaked overnight.

3. Heat oil in a pan and add bay leaves, red chili and cumin seeds.When cumin starts spluttering add ginger paste and green chili paste and fry for few seconds. Now add turmeric powder, cumin powder, fennel powder, red chili powder and little water. Fry the masala until oil get separated from it.

4. Add chopped tomato salt and little sugar. Stir for sometime until tomato becomes soft. Now add boiled jack fruit pieces and boiled green peas and  stir well so that it gets mixed with the masala uniformly. Add fried potato and let it covered and cook for 8 to 10 minutes with ocassional stirring. Now add garam masala powder (home made one by grinding cardamom, cinnamon and clove together) and mix it. Turn off the flame and let it cover for another 5 minutes.

Serve with hot plain  rice, chapatti or roti.
