1 tsp Onion powder
1 tsp Paprika
0.5 tsp Chili powder
1 tsp Salt
0.5 tsp Ground black pepper

1 cup Store-bought American-style barbecue sauce
5 Hamburger buns (preferably whole-wheat)
10 Lettuce leaves

Procedure :

    Cook the langka in boiling water for 20 minutes or until tender. Drain and squeeze the langka with your hands to remove the excess water. Pat dry with a clean kitchen towel and place in a large mixing bowl.

    In a non-stick casserole, heat two tablespoons of oil. Sauté the langka for 2-3 minutes or until it starts to brown. Add the barbecue sauce and simmer for five minutes.
  • 4
    Turn off the heat and shred the langka using two forks.
  • 5
    Heat the remaining oil in a non-stick skillet. Sauté the shredded langka mixture for five minutes or until slightly toasted.
  • 6
    Toast hamburger buns. Fill each hamburger bun with 1⁄3 cup of Vegan Pulled “Pork” Jackfruit and a lettuce leaf. Serve immediately.
