Pala Kottai (Jackfruit seeds) fry

Jackfruit is national fruit of Indonesia and Bangladesh. Its seed has cooling properties and rich in vitamins, dietary fiber, complex carbohydrate and minerals. Seed powder is used as a remedy for indigestion. We used to roast or steam and eat them in childhood, very tasty than potatoes;)

Jackfruit seeds - 15
Chilli powder - 1 tablespoon
Coriander seed powder - 1/2 tablespoon
Cumin seed powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Oil - 2 tablespoon

Heat pan and add 2 cups of water. Cook seeds until they are soft (Press it slightly with a knife/fork, it should go easily in it).

Drain water and peel off the skin and cut into two. Keep aside and allow it cool.

Heat oil in pan, once it is hot, add the cooked seeds. Fry for 5 minutes.

Add chilli powder, coriander seed powder, cumin seed powder, salt and fry until the raw smell goes off and thy turn golden brown.

Serve hot with rice.

Cooking time : 30 minutes
Serves 2 persons

Hi. Tried this recipe with pressure cooking the seeds for 30 mins and made the cooking part quick. But, peeling them is a time consuming job. Also, added xtra oil by mistake. But, the fry came out too gud. This s the best recipe for jackfruit seeds. Just can't stop having them. Thanks for posting this recipe.

Also, a suggestion from my side. If you can add a Facebook link below, I think Ur recipe will reach more places.
