Add oil, spices, onion and garlic to a pan on low heat and cook until onion has softened.
Add chilli sauce/flakes, tomato paste, maple syrup, soy sauce and water and mix sauce ingredients in pan until combined. Let it cook for a few minutes
Cut jackfruit into pieces removing the triangle pieces and shredding the fibres with a fork till it resembles a pulled meat.
Add jackfruit to the pan with the sauce and let it simmer and cook. Stir the jackfruit around the sauce to get it evenly coated.
Cut the avocado and scoop out the flesh, smash the avocado and season with salt and pepper, lime juice, diced red onion and diced tomatoes.
Wash, shred, dice, or grate any toppings you would like. I used spinach, tomatoes, red onion and smashed avocado.
