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
Chilly powder-11/2teaspoons(adjust to your spice level)
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.
