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)
2nos Potatoes (diced)
10nos Jackfruit seeds(partially cooked)

1tsp Red chilly powder
1/4cup Coconut milk
Salt
Oil
Few curry leaves
1/2tsp Mustard seeds
1/2tsp Fenugreek seeds
1/2tsp Caraway seeds/Shahjeera

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.

Priya,
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

Here in the United States I have only had jack fruit once, it was used as a meat substitute. I'm not sure if it was flesh or if it was seeds. If I can find some in a store here I would love to try this curry!
