Tender Jackfruit Curry

It's my favorite - a very tasty curry which I often make. Goes with plain, sambhar, rasam, or yogurt rice great.
Sometimes I feel why it's only available for a short period. But you know one thing, waiting for the next season thinking about the lingering taste.........a great experience. May sound silly - but we may learn to be more patient than when you get everything at any time of the year.


Tender jackfruit - 2 cups
Green chillies - 2 or 3
Cumin - 1/2 tsp
Yogurt - 1/4 cup
Coconut - 1/4 cup


Oil - 1 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Split urad dhal - 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida - a pinch
Curry leaves -  a few


Prepare and shred the jackfruit (instructions here). Grind to a smooth paste coconut, green chillies, cumin, and yogurt. Keep aside.

Heat the oil in a pan. Add the mustard seeds, when it splutters add the urad dhal, curry leaves, and asafoetida. Add the cooked and shredded tender jackfruit and stirfry for a couple of minutes.

Now add the ground coconut yogurt paste, mix thoroughly.

 Saute for a couple more minutes, till all the flavors blend. Stir and continue till the curry is a little dry, probably another minute or two.

Delicious vegetable curry is all ready.


You can also use chopped (smaller cubes) tender jackfruit instead of shredded ones for the curry.
