Step 2

Then, toss the jackfruit with the baking soda and half of the cajun seasoning in a bowl.

Step 3

Prepare three bowls, one with starch and salt, one with milk and vinegar, and one with panko breadcrumbs and the remaining cajun seasoning.

Step 4

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.

Step 5

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.

Step 6

Shake off excess oil and place the fried nuggets onto a rack lined with kitchen paper. Serve them warm, drizzled with lemon juice.
