One of the tastiest Bihari pickles, soft chunks of Jackfruit blended in rich spices and mustard oil. The right balance of spicy and tangy. Made by steaming the Jackfruit before sun-drying.

How we make the Jackfruit Pickle:
Our Kathal Ka Achar’s recipe is inspired from the traditional Maithil learnings handed to us over generations.
- The pickling process begins with washing, peeling, and the Kathal. The Jackfruit is then cut into small pieces, cleaned, and put out in the sun,for 8 hours, till the moisture dries up.
- The small pieces are put over steam for 10-15 minutes, so that they get softened.
- Thereafter, salt and turmeric are added, and the mixture is left for 24 hours.
- The spices are added along with the mustard oil. After a thorough round of mixing, the pickle vessel is kept out in the sun for 5-7 days.
- When the jackfruit softens, the pickle is ready and stored in martaban / glass jars.
Awesome taste and creative packaging. Liked the fact that it is preservative free. A bit over-priced though.
Amazing Jackfruit Pickle
The packaging was superb , no changes of breaking of the glass container.
I loved the jackfruit pickle, it is really very tasty and goes well with every food.
Really tasted the same as my dadi used to make. Great packaging and superb taste and truly feels like eating homemade. Purchased 3 pickles and would definitely try others also .
First of all , I want to congratulate jha ji n whole team .. I am really surprised when I have tasted the pickle .. it’s similar to what my mother make at home . It lol like I have taken from my home pickle jar . own house’s flavours and it doesn’t feel like we’re eating anything made outside … packing is so good .. keep it up team ..
Was waiting for exactly this taste outside Bihar for a long time and it has just the same taste. Never even thought that I would find these kinds of pickles in the market. These are definitely better than the ones found in the market and tastes just like home. Wonderful taste, feels exactly like my grandmother’s hand. My mother says it feels just like her own house’s flavours and it doesn’t feel like we’re eating anything made outside. Packaging is also superb with beautifully designed cloth inside it. Also the aroma from the pickles are amazing. Overall the pickles are great and would definitely buy them again and again and would recommend it to everyone who loves homemade pickles.
I have fallen in love with this! 1st jar wiped clean in 2 weeks
I stay in Gurgaon. You get all sorts of pickles here, but none quite like what my mom or granny used to make. Jha Ji's pickles take you back to the past. Shows that they know their ingredients and methods. After this, I feel happy that I know where to look for, for my future purchases of pickles.
Somonnoy ji, we are delighted that you liked the taste of the pickles :)
You honor us by comparing our pickles with ones made by your mum and granny. Feel privileged with your praise :)
