Fanas (Jackfruit) Cutlet

raw jackfruit fanas cutletJackfruit (Kathal/Fanas) Cutlets:
Summers in India meant hardly getting any veggies of my choice..(who likes doodhi or kaddu growing up?) The only good news was jackfruit. I loved it in any form (Rase ka kathal, pickles, dry veggie) but my favorite was the cutlets that my Mom made out of them. This is her recipe:

1 small jackfruit peeled and cut into pieces (Here you get canned jackfruit that is ready to use) or about 3 small cans
3 Onions
half cup rice
1 bunch cilantro
2 spoons grated ginger
2 tea spoons chopped green chili
salt to taste
Oil for shallow frying.

Soak rice in two cups of water for two hours and then grind it into a thick paste in a grinder using water.
Put 2 cups of water in a pressure cooker, put the jackfruit pieces in it and pressure cook it for 10 minutes.
Once the cooker has cooled down, drain the water and put jackfruit pieces in a bowl. Mash cooked jackfruit. Now add onions, cilantro, ginger, chili, salt and mix well. To this add the rice paste and mix it such that the jackfruit is covered in it and the consistency allows you to make patties out of it. Rice paste binds the jackfruit mix as well as gives it a crispy taste.
Heat oil in a wok and once oil is ready, shallow fry the jackfruit patties until they turn brown.
Serve hot with green chutney or hot sauce.

Variation: You can add a little bit of garam masala or red pepper to make it more spicy.

LAS VEGAS (AP) Police were called after hundreds of job seekers on Thursday flooded a board meeting for the new Oakland Raiders stadium in Las Vegas and turned irate when they discovered they'd been had by a Amari Cooper Jerseys hoax.A flyer promoting "pre-job recruitment sign-ups" attracted more than 700 people to a regularly scheduled meeting of the Las Vegas Stadium Authority board.Tensions flared among some attendees after officials explained there were no jobs as of yet on the $1.9 billion project, which has many steps Bruce Irvin Jerseys that must be completed before construction can begin.Las Vegas police closed off access to the county building's parking Charles Woodson Jerseys lots after the size of the crowd ballooned.Board chairman Steve Hill denounced the flyer after the meeting, saying, "If folks were brought to the meeting under a false pretense, I think that's too bad, that obviously shouldn't happen."But he added that the attendance "exhibits a real Latavius Murray Jerseys desire on the part of a number of people in the community to go to work."The fake flyer specifically targeted black men and women and advertised for union and non-union positions.Raiders executives and members of the group that the team has assembled to carry out the project spoke at Thursday's meeting and said they are working on an agreement that will address minority hiring and reaffirmed that they will meet a state-mandated 15 percent contracting of small businesses."The Raiders take this obligation very seriously," Raiders Executive Vice President Dan Ventrelle said of the so-called community benefits plan, which will outline the hiring of a diverse workforce. "We embrace working within the outline of the legislation and meeting all of its requirements."The board is expected to discuss the plan at its August meeting, as well as an agreement that would allow the football team of Khalil Mack Jerseys the University of Nevada, Las Vegas to use the 65,000-seat stadium that will be built near the Las Vegas Strip. The board must approve those two and other documents before any ground breaking. The team wants to play in Sin City starting in 2020.Guests of hotels and other lodging facilities in the Las Vegas area are contributing $750 million through a room tax increase. On Thursday, the board learned the tax increase yielded more than $13.1 million from March through May. That's 16 percent ahead of projections.The team and the NFL are expected to contribute $500 million to the project. In addition, the team has secured a $650 million loan from Bank of America to cover the rest of the project's cost.
