Whenever you pick up a health magazine and read an article about healthy eating, you will find an info about eating of seasonal veggies or fruits. It is really important to include seasonal veggies or fruits and locally grown veggies in your diet. Now suddenly there is a change in the climate and Winter turned to Summer almost omitting the Spring! Now vegetables markets are filled with Summer veggies and Winter veggies are almost gone out of market or you have to get them spending more money. Raw jackfruits have come to market! If you are a regular visitor then you must be knowing my love for one pot meals. How about putting this seasonal vegetable into your one pot meal? Green Jackfruit pulao or Raw Jackfruit Pulao is a very simple and exotic one pot meal which will satisfy your taste buds..
