Drumstick, Brinjal & Jackfruit Seeds Curry

We get even in winter the jackfruit seeds in Indian groceries, but it has been a long i bought them, this time i picked half kg of this jackfruit seeds and i wanted to make them some stir fry by cooking along with brinjal chunks and drumstick pieces..This is one of my mom's signature dish and she used to prepare this combination very often when i was kid..I wont say that i dont get Indian veggies rarely here, but we guys goes rarely to Indian groceries coz my H dont like the Indian groceries at all, he can go to any mall to get anything but purchasing at Indian groceries is quite an hard task for him, so we guys try to go atleast twice a month eventhough we are just living quite near to Indian groceries...I prepared this curry yesterday for our lunch and this curry goes prefectly awesome with rasam, i can just live with this curry and rasam everyday just love it that much..Delicious stir fry goes awesome even just along with rice and papads.

  6. Nearest Indian grocery is about 70miles for us, a good store that is. We go once in 6months, there is one nearby for emergency supplies. My H is okay with Indian grocery shopping but my lids never come inside, they don't like the smell of spices we love somuch! :D

    Excellent combo of veggies there, dish looks so good. Never get JF seeds here, must look for frozen ones.

  38. This is creative ! Can we use the Jackfruit seeds that we have after we eat the fruits?
    Cos I've these with me can try it out.

  39. @Kanchan, exactly the same one, once u eat the fruits, do let them dry for two or three days,peel the white skin and cook in hot water for few minutes and cook as anything with any veggies..hope this helps..
