Chakka Erissery !! (Raw Jack fruit & coconut)

Chakka/Raw Jack fruit Erissery  is something we Keralites are devoted to,mainly because it’s availability is limited to the season.Though we serve it with rice,I suggest you to have it as a main dish .It’s that much a filling treat to cherish !!

Ingredients

To cook Jack Fruit

4 cups of raw jackfruit/chakka,cleaned and chopped
1/4 cup of jackfruit seeds,peeled,cleaned and cut into two each
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
salt
2 cups water (approx)

For the coarse paste

1 cup grated coconut
2 green chillies
3 cloves of garlic (small)
1/2 tsp cumin seeds

To temper

1 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
2 dry chillies
2 sprig curry leaves
4 tbsp grated coconut

Method
Cook the chopped jack fruit and seeds adding turmeric powder,salt and water.Meanwhile make a coarse paste of ingredients mentioned in particular section.Add this paste to Jack fruit when it’s cooked three fourth.Mix well and mash it with the spoon when the raw smell disappears.Switch off the stove.Now heat oil in a small skillet and splutter mustard seeds,dry chillies and curry leaves.Add coconut to this and fry till golden brown.Pour this over the Erissery..
