Aash/ Aush

Aash sometimes referred to as aush, is a varity of thick soup.

I saw this recipe on a TV show named "Lost recipe" but when I googled, I saw so màny recipes of aash which were totally different. 

Usually this recipe is made with tender mutton along with some basic spices and the key thing in this recipe there is that tadka is added 7 times at an interval of every 1 hour.

But as i am vegetarian I always try to make veg version. 

I made it with raw jack fruit and followed all the steps as needed. 

The recipe turned out to be so delicious.

As I mentioned there are so many recipes of aash but they are totally different from the recipe which I saw on TV, so I followed the recipe which I saw on TV.

As I have made this recipe with raw jack fruit so I gave a little change in this recipe and added the tadka at an interval of half an hour. 

The cashew nut paste and cream gives it nice creamy texture. 

I think in future I will make more recipes using Jack fruit but when I made this one, I felt so proud of myself 😊😊
