Fennel Flavoured Drumstick & Jackfruit Seeds Curry

After having 15days of spiceless French foods during our vacation, we guys wanted to have some hot and spicy Indian dishes everyday once we came back home..So needless to say whatever i prepare with anything as anything with our Indian spices definitely makes us drool now..I prepared this fennel flavoured drumstick and jackfruit seeds curry sterday for our lunch,in which i usually add some chicken chunks, but this time i prepared simply as vegetarian version using drumstick pieces and jackfruit seeds which i have freezed before leaving for vacations, this curry tastes exactly like kurma and goes awesome as side dish with rotis or simply with rice and papads for lunch..Delicious curry tastes fabulous even with idlies and dosais also u doesnt need ginger garlic paste for making this curry, yep this curry gets ready in few minutes and also very easy to prepare..

Beautiful curry....mmmmm. I love jackfruit seeds. We used to boil them and eat them....very delicious. But never tried in curry. Would love to cook that if I have the chance. Sadly there's no jackfruit here. Thanks very much for sharing. MaryMoh at http://www.keeplearningkeepsmiling.com

ooo lala jackfruit seeds are my fav ...curry looks lip smacking :)

Wow, jackfruit seeds, I really miss this, never tried in curry before! We had a big jackfruit tree with really huge fruits when I was a little girl. We used to hide behind this tree during our "hide-and-seek" days! The fruit is divinely sweet and fragrant, we boil the seeds with salt, yummy! Thanks for reminding me about this, it's time for some jackfruit and seeds!
