The weather here in London is worse since last week,its very windy and rainy all the time.Cant go out really, yesterday I had to go out for a music session for my little one and the wind nearly blew me away, so today me and my little one stayed inside and I decided to make my time useful by visiting my friends blogs and refreshing my blog too. After my holidays I am still not in a mood to do some serious cooking,So I dont have anything fresh to post today. This chakka puzhukku is my moms special which we had during our holidays..
Here goes the recipe
Raw Jackfruit - 1/2 of the fruit
Grated coconut- 1/4 cup
Shallots - 10
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Garlic crushed - 1 tbs
Redchilly powder - 1 tbs
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Cook the jackfruit with redchilly powder,turmeric powder and salt by adding water till it is cooked and mushy.
Grind coconut ,shallots,cumin seeds into a coarse paste.Add this paste to the cooked jackfruit along with crushed garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes.Finally in a pan take some oil and sputter mustard seeds followed by whole redchillies and curry leaves and add to the chakka puzhukku.
