BBQ Sauce

  • 2 cups tomato sauce
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika powder

  1. Slice the jackfruit as thinly as possible. Seeds don’t need to be discarded as they are soft.
  2. Sautee the garlic and onions in a little oil.
  3. Add the chilli powder, paprika and garlic powder and toast for 1 minute.
  4. Add the jackfruit.
  5. Add the mustard and Worcestershire sauce.

  7. Add salt and pepper to your liking.
  8. Stew the jackfruit  mixture for 2 hours, until the jackfruit  is tender. Once tender, pull it apart with a fork and spoon.

Bake the jackfruit

  1. Drain the jackfruit and spread out on a baking pan.
  2. Top with BBQ sauce and mix well.

Make the sandwich

  2. Fill it with the pulled jackfruit.  Add a leafy green for texture.
  3. Serve with a side of achara if desired!


This will make more than 10 sliders. However, the jackfruit can be stored- the longer its stored, the more flavourful it becomes!
