Pulled Jack fruit Sandwich

Jackfruit, I have always dreaded it, since my childhood. Never liked or always avoided anything that has jackfruit in it.

However, a couple of years back, I came across a basic stir-fry of jackfruit and onion spiced with Cumin, and I realized the great taste Jackfruit can bring to the plate and that started a lot of experiments in my kitchen using Jackfruit. Latest one bring Pulled Jackfruit sandwich, which came out so perfect that I had to share the recipe with you.
