Instructions for jackfruit:
Mix all the dry ingredients together and thoroughly coat the jackfruit.
Lay the breaded pieces out on parchment paper, foil or a baking pan.
Using a spray bottle filled with water, spray the breaded jackfruit just enough so the breading is moist
Flip the jackfruit and do the same on the other side.
Once done put them in the oven and bake until crunchy.
If they are not getting crunchy after about 30 minutes, remove them from the oven and fry them in some grapeseed oil.
When you have achieved the desired look of crunchiness, immediately place them in your prepared sauce.
Fresh jackfruit is best, but if you use canned, make sure it is in water, not syrup. Boil canned jackfruit in water for 30 minutes to take out the sodium and preservatives. After 30 minutes, change the water and boil for another 30 minutes. After the 2nd boil, strain out all of the water and rinse the jackfruit in warm water.
