Jackfruit Seed Roast / Palakottai Poriyal

We Love Jack fruits..Whenever we have it, i used to save the seed and prepare curry along with eggplant and drumstick. the combination of all the three in the curry is the best combo not to miss. When i got a pack of Jack fruit seeds, my domestic helper suggested me to try Poriyal/Roast with it. I readily went ahead and we loved it a lot. Here is how i made..

Jackfruit Seed Roast

Get Ready with 20 Jack fruit Seeds / Palakottai, wash them thoroughly and pressure cook them with little water and salt for up to 5 whistles. On pressure Cooking, cool them and remove the outer white skin( this is a time consuming process, but you got to do it.) them cut the seeds into into half and set aside.

Heat a tbsp of oil in a pan, add 1/4 tsp mustard,1/4 tsp urad dal, a stalk of curry leaves, 2 dry red chilli and fry them. Now add jackfruit and let it coat with the oil, add a pinch of turmeric powder, 1/2 tsp sambhar powder, and mix well, so that seeds get coated with masala. Keep stirring in slow flame for about 5 minutes till the raw smell of masala powder goes off.

Serve it with Sambhar Rice or with Rasam Rice. iam sure you will enjoy the combination.
