To prepare Awadhi Style Kathal Ke Kebab Recipe, let us first cut the raw jackfruit. In order to do that we have to first grease our hands and the knife that is going to be used with oil.

Now that your hands and knife are well greased, cut the the jackfruit in half, discard the skin and start making 1 inch pieces and then soak them in the salted water.

To start cooking the Raw Jackfruit, place the cut pieces of raw jackfruit in a pressure cooker with 1/2 cup of water and pressure cook for 2-3 whistles, Allow the pressure to release naturally. Drain the raw jackfruit pieces and allow to cool and set aside.

Take a bowl, transfer the boiled jackfruit pieces, add garlic- ginger paste and all the spice powders- garam masala powder, cumin powder, red chilli powder, chat masala, chilli flakes. Mix well.

Now add gram flour, rice flour, chopped onions, green chilies, coriander leaves. Combine well.

Divide the Kathal Kebab mixture into equal portions. Roll each of the portions into a lemon sized ball and then slightly press between your palms to make tikki like discs. Repeat this for rest of the Kathal Kebab mixture.

Heat a pan or kadahi with oil, on medium heat, to pan fry the Kathal Kabab. Place a few kathal kebabs on the pan and deep fry on medium flame for 4-5 minutes, and flip and cook on the other side of the kebab.(you can do shallow fry these kababs.)
