Potato & Jackfruit Seed Tomato Gravy

Whoever love potatoes in tangy gravy will definitely love the addition of jackfruit seeds in the dish, we rarely get jackfruit seeds from Indian stores, once i get them i peel the white skin of those seeds and cook them until they turn bit soft,once they get cool i'll freeze them immediately for further uses, so i can cook anytime as anything with jackfruit seeds, freezing those rare seeds are quite handy and also u can make ur favourite dishes anytime.

This gravy is prepared with juicy tomatoes and tamarind extract, for a change i tempered this gravy using mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds and caraway seeds, the addition of caraway seeds didnt change the taste of this gravy, this gravy tastes absolutely divine when served along with hot steaming rice and papads..Needless to say this gravy suits prefectly with rice,idli,dosais or else with rotis.

Potato & Jackfruit Seed Tomato Gravy

1cup Tamarind extract
2nos Tomatoes (juicy & chopped)
2no Onions (diced)
5nos Garlic cloves (crushed)

  4. I would love to try one. The curry looks delicious.

    In Kerala we have plenty of jack fruits. However, people have lost their taste in trying to prepare recipes using it.

    Back home jackfruit seeds is something from a bygone era, I do think very few even try using these in cooking anymore sad isn't..these are very rare also..I dont get these here..Have prepared a vegetable medley with jack fruit seeds many time back..and thats just a very neat idea for freezing the cooked seeds..thanks for that and love the texture of gravy..hugs and smiles
