Raw Jackfruit Biryani Recipe | Easy Kathal Biryani

Raw Jackfruit Biryani Recipe | Easy Kathal Biryani | Panasakaya Biryani - Jackfruit Biryani is a beautiful recipe for parties, special days and it is a special wedding recipe. Jackfruit Biryani is unique and here is a detailed recipe with images and video.

Jackfruit biryani is a Tamil Nadu wedding special recipe. It travelled to Andhra and came with a few changes along the way. I am making the Tamil Nadu version of the recipe.

I had first eaten this Biryani when I attended a wedding in Chennai. That fragrance and taste made me eat again and again. And I never forgot that taste. I had subsequently tasted this recipe in Andhra weddings too. It was tasty but not the way it was in Tamil Nadu.

In Tamil Nadu-style Jackfruit Biryani, they definitely use the Beans. In Andhra Biryani, there isn't much use of Beans. I am making the Tamil Nadu style Biryani right now.
If you use the measures I have suggested for this recipe, it may be a little spicy. Those who like lesser spice can reduce the quantity of Cloves, Star Anise, Pepper and Fennel Seeds.

Jackfruit :

  1. I have used frozen Jackfruit pieces. In summers, you can get raw Jackfruit pieces; After summer, you can find frozen Jackfruit pieces in most supermarkets.

  2. If you soak the Jackfruit pieces in Buttermilk for 30 minutes before frying, then the details won't turn black.

  3. Fry the Jackfruit Pieces well but do not mash them in the Oil or they become a paste by the time the Rice is cooked.

Double Beans:

  1. In Tamil Nadu wedding recipes, they use Double Beans soaked overnight. I have done that too. They add great taste to the Biryani.

  2. If you are not using the Double Beans, reduce the water by half a cup.

Masala Paste:

Roast the Spices and then make them a smooth paste.


This recipe needs more Oil. Only then it is tasty, or you won't get the taste even though you may follow the rest of the instructions diligently.

Biryani Vessel:

The vessel has to be thick-bottomed only. Or the Biryani will crust at the bottom and burn.
