Chakka Puzhukku




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

Ingredients

Raw Jackfruit - 1/2 of the fruit
Grated coconut- 1/4 cup
Shallots - 10
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
