The reason why I don’t stew the jackfruit together with the lentils, is because I like to keep that dry, sort of crunchy consistency of baked jackfruit. When I have added the jackfruit directly to the stew, it becomes soggier. This depends on your preference. If you like, you can add the jackfruit with the lentils for a few minutes. However, be aware that the jackfruit will become a bit soggy.
