Fusion Food in the Vegan Kitchen, pulls together wonderful combinations of at least two cultures in each recipe. It was supposed to snow here today and it’s a little dreary – this Indian Spiced Chili will definitely brighten my evening!
Jackfruit is a wonderful vegan addition. Once cooked it turns into something that looks like shredded meat making it perfect in chili or bbq.
The jackfruit we use is young jackfruit in brine that you can buy in cans at an Asian market or Trader Joes. You do not want to use the sweet jackfruit – it’s not the same thing and is not good in savory dishes.
Joni pairs the jackfruit with Indian spices like garam masala, coriander, turmeric. It also has some of the same great flavors you expect from a traditional chili.
She does spice it up with red chilies and fresh jalapeños so it will satisfy your spicy cravings too.
