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.

பலாகொட்டை மிகவும் அருமையாக இருக்கும்...நானும் ஊரில் இருந்த பொழுது சாப்பிட்டது...இங்கு frozenயில் கிடைக்கும்...ஆனால் நான் வாங்குவதில்லை..அடுத்த முறை கண்டிப்பாக வாங்கி சமைக்க வேண்டும்...//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//Same story here tooooo....

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.

எங்கம்மாவும் இப்படிதான் செய்வாங்க.ஆனா அப்போ எனக்கு பலாக்கொட்டை சாப்பிடபிடிக்காது.அதை தூக்கி எறிந்துவிட்டு சாப்பிடுவேன்.இப்போ பலாக்கொட்டை கிடைக்காதான்னா ஏங்குகிறேன்.இதான் காலம் செய்த கோலம் போல... அம்மாவின் சமையலை ஞாபகபடுத்திட்டீங்க...அருமை!!

Kanchan said... Reply To This Comment

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.

Priya said... Reply To This Comment

@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..
