Updated: May 24, 2021
Enchor (Green jack fruit ) and shrimp are an awesome combo. Shrimp adds more flavor to it. But if you want to make a complete veggie version, just do not add the shrimp. Cutting green jack fruit is a little tricky and I showed how to cut green jack fruit in my last recipe. Please check it there in case.
For this, you need fresh tender green jack fruit. If you do not have it, take the canned jackfruit and drain the water and use it. Fresh jack fruit is the best for this recipe, as the canned jack fruit pieces stay in the vinegar water in the can, it may have a little tangy taste to it.
