Vegan Pulled Jackfruit Recipe

Vegan pulled jackfruit
  1. In a frying pan, add some oil and add onions. Cook them until they are soft; it will take you about 12 minutes.
  2. Now add cinnamon, cumin, and paprika to these cooked onions and allow it to cook more for about 2-4 minutes.
  3. After 2 minutes, add tabasco, vinegar and BBQ sauce and stir it well before adding tomatoes to the pan. After the sauce and spices have mixed along, add tomatoes, jackfruit and 200 ml water.
  4. Keep the heat low and cook it while keeping it covered and stir it after every 5-8 minutes so that it may not get stuck down to the frying pan’s base and help the jackfruit to breakdown and tender.
  5. After you feel the jackfruit is almost ready and soft, take the lid off and cook for another 10-12 minutes.
  6. Now, when your jackfruit is ready, check if all the pieces are shredded well and add some more seasoning if needed. And serve it hot.

Alas! Your Pulled Jack fruit is now ready to eat and will make a perfect choice for your weekend plans. Enjoy this recipe with all your mates and friends and see how they will react to this unique and delicious Jack fruit cooked with BBQ sauce.
