Jackfruit Seeds and Green Mango Curry


  • 1 cup Jackfruit seeds, skinned and quartered
  • 1/2 cup green mango slices ( use more if the mango is not too sour)
  • 3 Green chilies, slit
  • Salt to taste
  • To Grind
    • 1/4 cup Grated coconut
    • 1/4 tsp cumin
    • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
    • 1 tsp sliced shallots
    • 1 clove garlic
  • For Tempering
    • 1 tsp oil
    • 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
    • 1/4 tsp fenugreek seeds
    • 2 dry red chilies
    • 1 tsp thinly sliced shallots
    • a few curry leaves

Method(How to Cook)

Place jackfruit seeds in a pan and add enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, cover and cook for about 8-10 minutes on medium heat till the seeds are soft.

Add salt,mango and green chili slices to the pan and cook for another 3-4 minutes till the mango pieces are well cooked. Mash the seeds and the mango lightly with the back of a wooden spoon.

Grind all the ingredients in the Grind section with a little bit of water to form a smooth paste. Add this to the pan and mix well. Cook on low heat till the mixture just starts to boil, do not let it boil completely.

In a small frying pan, heat oil and add the mustard and fenugreek seeds. When the mustard seeds start to splutter, add the shallots, red chilies and curry leaves and sauté for a few seconds. Pour this over the curry and mix well.

Serve with rice and a spicy side dish, I love this with fried fish.
