BM#63 Day 6 -
Here is another authentic recipe from the kitchen of my friend's mom. I understand that in the coastal region of Maharashtra, they use a lot of coconut, jack fruit and mango apart of many other spices.
Lot of my friends were surprised that I made this raw jack fruit curry. Apparently they were not aware that the raw jack fruit was available in the canned form.
Recipe Source Shalaka
Tender Jack Fruit, chopped 2 cups (I used a canned version)
Peanuts and Cashews handful each soaked for a few minutes
Salt, Turmeric and Red Chili Powder as needed
Seasoning (Oil 2 tsp, Mustard seeds 1/2 tsp, Asafotida a pinch)
Method Of Preparation -
Drain the cashews and peanuts. Add them to the chopped jack fruit and steam cook them.
In a heated pan, add oil and the rest of the seasoning ingredients. After the mustard seeds crackle, add in the cooked jack fruit mixture.
Sprinkle salt, turmeric and red chili powder. Mix well and remove from heat.
Serve it as an accompaniment to rice and dal.
Preparation Time 15 minutes
