LOS ANGELES, Calif. (FOX 11) - Chef Shachi Mehra from ADYA – Fresh Indian Flavors was on Good Day LA Friday morning making jackfruit vindaloo pavs!
They are like spicy, vegetarian sloppy joes.
Watch the video to see Chef Shachi demonstrate how she puts this dish together and gives advice on how you can make the pavs at home.
2 cans young jackfruit in brine or water (NOT in syrup)
¼ cup oil
2 white onions, diced
½ cup chopped ginger
6Tbsp chopped garlic
2 cups tomato puree
3Tbsp Vindaloo spice mix **see recipe below**
¼ cup + 2 T red wine vinegar
4 buns, buttered and toasted till golden brown
Rinse jackfruit thoroughly and cut in to smaller pieces. Set aside.
In a large pan, over medium heat, sauté onions, ginger and garlic with a pinch of salt until they start to turn golden brown. Stir in paprika, tomato puree and vindaloo mix. Cook over medium heat until tomato puree is cooked through. Adjust seasoning with salt, sugar and vinegar.
Add in jackfruit pieces. Cover and braise over low heat until warmed through – about 10-12 minutes. Lightly mash jackfruit to get ‘pulled’ texture.
Serve on toasted buttered buns with pickled onions.
