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.
Your Kathal pickle 😋 was really delicious little bit spicy though, you will take 4 pranthas if you usually take 2 paranthas with achaar.
Namaste Anup ji,
Bahut bahut dhanayawaad. Aapki baat bilkul sahi hai ki hamara achar thora spicy hai jo mithila ke traditional taste ko follow karte hai.
Hame esehi mauka dete rahye ki hum apke plate me ek aur paratha badha paye :)
Just like how my Dadi used to make. Bachpan ki yaad aa gayi.
Thank you so much Manish ji, that you have related our pickle once made by your Dadi Maa.
We tried to maintain the taste of authentic, traditional Bihari style pickle.
My hole family love your pickle very much specially jack fruits pickle
Namaste Anamika ji,
It's my pleasure to hear from you that you have liked our pickle.
I recommend you to try our Grated Mango pickle.
Not very happy as I felt that what was sent was from previous year and not fresh from this year. The oil tasted old.
I ordered bharua mango n mithila aam..Both are amazing and reordered twice now..Must try.
I didnt like the taste much .packaging was a mess too. Mystard oil had dripped all over
We are disappointed that the pickles reach you in the perfect condition.
Having said that, I'd like you to try a few more pickles from our store. Please coupon code JHAJI500 in your next order, it'll apply a discount of Rs 500/- on your order :)
I'd like you to order once again, and allow us the opportunity to change your mind again about our work.
By the way, I'll recommend Kuccha Mango Pickle & Oal Pickle.
Let me know if I can help you in any way :)
jackfruit pickle sent to me was completely spoilt. Oil used was very old. I come from Bihar and i know the authentic taste of jackfruit pickle. This was very low standard pickle and not just up to the name of jhaji, I have been cheated by sending spoilt pickle. I have decided to never buy any pickle from your store again. Stop cheating customers.
Namaste Shweta ji,
We are disappointed that you did not like our Jackfruit pickle. This pickle was although prepared in the month of March and April, can have a very strong mustard oil smell.
As informed, we have placed a replacement order for you with the Spicy Green chili pickle. Once it will be delivered to you I hope you will like it.
Ek number in taste good packaging in jar . Would recommend this to all.
Namaste Abhay ji,
Thank you so much for your review and your support.
Taste is authentic to Mithila culture. I enjoyed it. But cost-wise, a bit costly.
