ENchore Shami (Green Jackfruit Kebab)

Few days back I shared the recipe of ‘Chicken Shami Kebab’. Since then many of my readers asked me for a Vegetable Shami Kebab recipe. What better can be the option other than making Shami Kebab with green jackfruit or ‘ENchore’! Trust me this ‘shami kebab’ is as good as the non-vegetarian version of it. You can also use also use it as burger patty for your kid’s lunch box as well other than serving it as a starter.
