Raw Jack fruit Preparation(Kathal Ki Sabzi)

Raw jack fruit is liked more at my home than the ripe one.The raw one tastes more like a non vegetarian preparation due to its fibrous texture.My childhood memories revolve around days of holi when we as children enjoyed this preparation at many neighbours place.Raw jack fruit with puri is a mandatory preparation in Holi in the states of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh.
