Jackfruit Seeds Masala

My mom used to make it back in India and we loved this dish. I have actually been eating jack fruits here but haven't really tried to make this dish at home with the seeds. I bought jack fruit from a local store in San Diego and I collected the seeds from the fruit. This time I wanted to make this dish with the seeds. I asked my mom for the recipe and I made this dish. It turned out very good. My husband also liked it. It is a mix of spicy and tangy taste. So you can never dislike this dish. I just have very few seeds. I had bought already cut jack fruit and so I had about 15 seeds only. So i managed to make this dish with these seeds. They were also really small seeds. So we were actually fighting for the dish. Had I known that this would happen I would have bought more . It happens you see :-) Next time I am going to buy more of it so that I can collect more seeds and make sufficient quantity so that we don't fight  ;-)

These seeds are good source of protien which I just read here


Jack fruit Seeds - 15 (I had only 15 :-( )
Shallot - 1 cut lengthwise
Tomato sauce - 2 - tbsp
Salt to taste
Red chilli powder - 1tsp
Turmeric - a pinch
Oil - 1 tbsp


Cook the jack fruit seeds separately. I cooked it along with rice in pressure cooker for 3 whistles and it was perfectly cooked. Remove the skin from the seeds and cut it lengthwise into half or 4 pieces depending on the size. 

Heat oil in a pan. Add onions. Saute till it caramelizes. Then add turmeric, red chilli powder and the seeds. Saute it till the spices blend well with the seeds. Add salt and mix well. 

Fry for about 3-4 mins and add tomato sauce and mix well for another 2 mins. 

When the seeds are well mixed with the spices and sauce, remove and serve with rice or roti. 

Take care and catch you soon.
