kadgi podi (Tender jackfruit fry)
Kadgi podi or tender jack fruit fry is one of the most favourite dish to almost all Konkanis. It is prepared in most of the festivals and feasts. Its my favourite dish and I never bothered about eating the deep fried podis since it is available for a short season in a year. Most people avoid preparing jack fruit recipes because its very messy affair, but this dish is worth trying.
