Pala pinju poriyal/ Baby JackFruit Stir Fry

Baby Jack fruit is a seasonal veggie which is available for a few days in the summer season. Back home we use to buy this for every year. It tastes awesome. Few days back, I saw few baby jack fruits in the Indian store. I was so excited and grabbed one without second thought.(May be I should have thought for a minute!!;) )

So this is how the veggie was...I peeled the skin & cubed it into chunks with the idea of making a simple stir fry.

Baby Jack fruit chunks-11/2cups
Red chilly-2
Green Chilly-1
Few curry leaves
Mustard seed-1/2teaspoon
Channa dhal & Urad dhal -1teaspoon each
Turmeric powder-1/4teaspoon
Garam masala powder-1/2teaspoon
Grated coconut- 11/2 teaspoons

Cut the onion-green chilly into thin slices.
Heat oil in a kadai, make the tempering with mustard seeds, then add channa dhal-urad dhal and fry till they turn golden colour.
Now add the onion-g.chilly,broken red chilly pieces,turmeric powder and fry till the onions become transparent.
Then add the baby jack fruit, sprinkle little water.

Cover the pan and cook for 5-6 minutes.(till the veggie becomes tender). Add coconut and garma masala, give it a quick stir and put off the flame.
Baby jack fruit poriyal is ready! Goes well with any rice item or with Roti.
Baby jack fruit won't be sweet, it will have a nice taste, but to my surprise, this one was tasting just like jack fruit!! yesssssss..the veggie was sweet! My DH didn't like anything sweet, so after a few bites, he just handed over it to me! I have a sweet tooth, so enjoyed it! ;) ;)

  4. Hey! Isn't this breadfruit!! என் ஃபேவரிட். ;P. Is it called 'baby jackfruit' too!! ம்.. அப்போ பிஞ்சுப்பலாக்காயை எப்படி சொல்வீங்க!! (அறுசுவைல 'சக்கை' என்று போட்டு இருப்பாங்க.) இருந்தாலும் தெளிவுபடுத்திக்கலாம்னு கேக்குறேன். ஊருக்கு ஊர் வித்தியாசம் இல்லையா?

    1. yup. I think this is breadfruit, not baby jackfruit.

  5. 'இப்பல்லாம் போஸ்டிங் ஒழுங்கா படிச்சு முடிக்காம கமன்ட் போடுறாங்க இமா, க்ர்ர்ர்'ன்னு மகி திட்டுறது கேக்குது. ;)) கடைசி பாரா இப்போ படிச்சுட்டேன். ;)
