Jump to recipe ↓

This curry made with a combination of starchy jackfruit seeds, fleshy drumsticks and sour raw mangoes is a popular one in Kerala. It is made whenever jackfruit is in season.

The same curry can be made with any 2 of the above ingredients depending on availability. Tomoto can be substituted for raw mango if you don't have. If you are a non-veg lover, you can add prawns to this combo.

The process of peeling the jackfruit seeds takes some time. I usually do it the previous day. The curry tastes absolutely delicious with white rice. Do give it a try.
