Jackfruit seeds n Peas Masala

11:02 Niloufer Riyaz 10 Comments

Jackfruit is all over here, after eating those succulent fruits, most of us throw away the seeds, but dont do it next time coz you can make wonderful tasty gravies with those seeds, just dry them out in the sun, peel the white skin n the brown one, the seeds are ready to be used in your curries. I usually make Palakottai Pachai Payiru Kuzhambu i.e,. Moong Dal gravy with jackfruit seeds. But this time I wanted to prepare something different, Cooked them, chopped them n made a gravy out of it, It was delicious, the gravy was smooth, silky n tasty too. Since I had little Thick Cream remaining in the fridge I added them, you can add either Cashew Paste or add low fat cream instead of thick cream.
