Raw Jack fruit curry

This was long time due..kitchenkatta's next guest post, by one of my dear friend of childhood.
We recently came if touch after 20 long years and it felt though nothing has changed.
Sometime back she shared me this mouth watering recipe to be featured on kitchekkatta and I was surely delighted. As my work kept me super busy and also there were few more posts already scheduled this one was actually delayed. But now today finally I am with this...
So here comes the Jack fruit curry as contributed by Hiral. I have done slight variations in few proportions such as to suite to taste of most of my readers. 

1. 1 small raw jack fruit approx. 300 gms    
2. 2 tsp Garlic paste
3. 2 medium sized Onion paste                    
4. 2 tsp Ginger paste

12. 3 tbsp Red Chili powder
13. Cashew nut paste around1 small cup
14. 1/2 cup Khoya
15. Salt as per taste
16. Oil for frying 
17. 4 tbsp Oil for making garvy
18. 1 tbsp fresh coriander leaves chopped

1. Cut jack fruit  in medium size pieces. Apply oil on hand and on knife as it will be too sticky.   
2. Mix 1/2 tbsp turmeric, salt, 1 tsp each of ginger-garlic paste and 1 tbsp curds. Marinate the jack fruit pieces with this mixture and keep aside for around 15 mins
3. Heat oil and fry the marinated jack fruit pieces. Drain on absorbent paper and keep aside

8. Reduce the flame and add curd, cashew nut paste. Add khoya and mix well
9. Add salt. Remember the jack fruit pieces are fried with marination containing salt. So adjust salt according to gravy
10. Add fried jack fruit pieces and mix well. Add water as required to tick gravy consistency.
 Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve hot with paratha, phulka or chapati
