This healthy jackfruit goulash is one of my preferred vegan plans. It is like the customary Hungarian Goulash. Cooking it long and the flavoring makes the jackfruit goulash flavourful and delicate. 

It isn’t just an ideal dish in the event that you need to intrigue your visitors for supper yet in addition acclaimed for a comfortable end of the week supper with loved ones.  Serving the Jackfruit goulash with stuffed natively constructed potato dumplings and red cabbage. 

I generally needed to cook this dish for a very long time. Today I at long last had the opportunity to attempt it. Rather than meat, I utilized jackfruit. The remainder of the formula is the way I made hamburger goulash in those days when I ate meat. 

I personally like the jackfruit as a meat best alternative in light of its surface. The taste is very impartial in the event that you make a point to flush the jackfruit completely. In any case an excess of saline solution will get into your dish. To flush it great, I destroy it with my fingers and afterward wash it with cold water.

  • Peel potatoes, wash and cut into large chunks.

  • Drain the potatoes and let cool so that you are able to touch them without burning yourself.
  • With the help of a potato ricer press the potatoes into a bowl.

I suggest setting up the goulash one day ahead of time so it has the opportunity to absorb the flavors and grow more flavors.
