Impress your guests with these irresistible bite-sized fried jackfruit nuggets seasoned with fragrant cajun spices.
They're wonderfully crispy and "meaty", perfect as a party nibble or sharing starter.
Drain and rinse the jackfruit, then squeeze out excess water. Chop the chunks into bite-sized pieces.
Then, toss the jackfruit with the baking soda and half of the cajun seasoning in a bowl.
Prepare three bowls, one with starch and salt, one with milk and vinegar, and one with panko breadcrumbs and the remaining cajun seasoning.
Roll each nugget in the starch, dip it in the milk, and coat it with breadcrumbs. Then, repeat one more time to get a thicker and crunchier coating.

Pour frying oil into a pot, heat it to 180°C (355°F), add in 4 nuggets. Fry them for 3 minutes until crusty and lightly browned.
Shake off excess oil and place the fried nuggets onto a rack lined with kitchen paper. Serve them warm, drizzled with lemon juice.
