This is one of my favourite Ripe jack fruit curries. This curry is sweet and spicy at the same time.Similar to the pineapple pachadi. I used frozen jackfruit coz fresh is not available here.

Chilli powder-1/2 tsp

To make a paste

Grated Fresh Coconut-1/2 cup
Green chillies-2
Cumin seeds-1/2 tsp

For seasoning:

Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
Red chillies-2
Curry leaves- a few
Coconut Oil-2 tsp

Salt-to taste

Method:

In a pan add the diced jack fruit with turmeric,salt,red chillie powder and 1/2 cup water.Cook for 10 minutes.

Grind to gether the coconut,green chillies and cumin in to a smooth paste with enough water. Add this to the cooked jackfruit and bring to a boil.

In a pan add the seasoning,when mustard seeds splutters add this to the jackfruit curry. Enjoy with Rice.
