Of Flavours & Tastes…
With the jackfruit season round the corner,I can’t keep myself away from preparing this very nostalgic dish.It’s the summer vacation,the aroma of freshly ripe mangoes and the pretty nostalgic memories of seasonal dishes emerge from kitchen – I love to recollect and bring back here.This jackfruit seeds roasted in spices is something you can’t resist..Absolutely delightful.Better enjoy with hot cuppa !
2 cups jackfruit seeds,peeled and sliced
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
3/4 – 1 cup water (depends with the seeds-some take time to cook)
salt as required
2 tsp oil
5-6 small garlic cloves,with skin
3 dry red chillies
1/4 tsp mustard seeds
2 sprig curry leaves
Bring together jackfruit seeds,turmeric powder,salt and water in a medium pan.Once boiled,close with the lid and cook in low fire till jackfruit seeds are cooked,not mushy.Switch off and keep.Meanwhile crush the shallots,dry chillies and garlic together.Heat oil in a pan and splutter mustard seeds and curry leaves.Reduce the heat and add the crushed mixture.Roast stirring with a spoon till the raw smell disappears.Add the cooked jackfruit seeds along with water if any.Mix well and check salt.Roast till everything is blended well and jackfruit gets coated with the spices.Serve with rice or have with hot cuppa !
