Pulled Jackfruit Filling

1 Jackfruit
1 tbsp sunflower oil
1 chopped red onion
4 cloves of garlic, chopped
Salt (to taste)
Tomato sauce
1 tbsp brown sugar
Green chillies chopped (to taste)
Coriander leaves and stalks
Black pepper
Juice of 2 limes

De-skin and de-seed the jackfruit (preserving the seed for the hummus). Heat oil in a frying pan and cook the onion and garlic till soft and translucent. Add the tomato sauce, brown sugar, lime, green chillies and the jackfruit. Add water and leave to simmer for 25-30 minutes, covering the pan and stirring every 5-7 minutes. Uncover the pan and let the jackfruit cook for another 5-10 minutes. Once dry, take the pan off the heat and pull the jackfruit with 2 forks.
Stir in the coriander stalks and leaves

Jackfruit Seed Hummus

Credit: Radhika Khandelwal

1 cup jackfruit seeds
4 cloves garlic
2 tbsp tahini
1 tsp cumin seeds
Salt (to taste)
Juice of 2 limes
2 tbsp vegetable oil

Prepare the seeds by boiling them for 10 minutes and removing the plastic like covering from them. Add seeds and all other ingredients in a blitzer and blitz with oil until super smooth in consistency.

To Assemble the burger

Use Buns of choice (I prefer Ragi or Kodo millet buns). Cut into half and toast. Spread the jackfruit seed hummus onto the halves. Then add the pulled jackfruit filling. Fresh crunchy vegetables like cucumber and carrots go exceptionally well with this burger! Assemble and serve!
