Dried mangoes are available here, I wish at least dried jack fruit was available.
When I had seen the jack-fruit seeds in one of the Asian stores, I quickly grabbed them. At that time I had no idea what I was going to make with it.
Jack fruit seeds: 10
Bringal: 2 big ones, chopped
Tomatoes: 2 large chopped into small pieces
Onion: 1 large chopped
Green Chili: 1, slit
Coriander leaves: hand ful
Ginger & garlic paste: 1 tsp
Salt: according to taste
Turmeric Powder: 1/4 tsp
Red Chili Powder: 1 tsp
Oil: 2 tbsp
Mustard seeds: 1 tsp
Cumin: 1 tsp
Chana dal: 1 tsp
Curry Leaves: 1 string
- Remove the outer layer of the jack fruit seed and boil in hot water for 10 minutes.
- Chop the seed into 4 parts and keep aside.
- In a pan, heat oil and add mustard seeds, cumin, chana dal and curry leaves.
- Fry for few seconds and add the chopped onions and green chili.
- When the onions are fried, add turmeric powder, salt and chili powder. Fry for a few seconds and add the ginger & garlic paste and fry for a minute taking care not to burn.
- Now add the chopped bringal and tomatoes and a little water.
- When the bringal is half cooked, add the boiled jack fruit seeds.
- Cook until brinjal is completely cooked, switch off the stove and garnish with coriander leaves.
