Jack Fruit Seed Stir-fry/Palakottai Aviyal

I buy Jack fruit at least once before the summer ends! This time (as usual) the fruit was not that sweet, but got some good quantity of jack fruit seeds. Was disappointed about the fruit and left the seeds to dry for 2-3 days! ;) Co-incidentaly I saw this recipe and prepared it. This is a nice variation to the usual pala kottai sambar or stir fry.

Pala kottai/Jack fruit seeds-1cup
Mustard seeds-1/2teaspoon
Coconut oil-2teaspoons
To grind
Chilly powder-11/2teaspoons(adjust to your spice level)
Turmeric powder-1/4teaspoon
Cumin seeds-1teaspoon
Pepper corns-7
Curry leaves- few

If the jack fruit seeds are fresh, you can skip this step. Mine were little dry, so I boiled them for 5 minutes. 
Grind the coconut-chilly powder-turmeric powder-curry leaves-cumin seeds-pepper corns with little water to a fine paste.
Heat coconut oil in a pan, add the mustard seeds and let them pop-up. Add thinly sliced onions and fry till they become transparent. Add the chopped tomato and cook until tomatoes become mushy.
Add the (pre cooked or fresh)jack fruit seeds and fry for a while.
Now add the masala paste..
Mix everything nicely and cook on medium heat for 5 more minutes.
Delicious Jack fruit seed stir fry is ready to serve. Goes well with rice as well as roti.
