Chakkakuru Mezhukuperrutti~Stir Fried Jack Fruit Seeds

This is one dish my mom's elder sister is a pro at! I love the way Remaniammama makes her chakkakuru mezhukkuperruti. I have eaten her dish way too many times, for sure I love the way she does it because there is alot more love added when she does it for us!

Jack fruit Seeds - 400gms
Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp
Chili Powder - 1/2 tsp
Garlic - 8 pods, chopped finely
Coconut Slivers (Thengakothu) - 1/4cup
Water - 1/4cup
Salt to taste

Peel the white outer cover off the jack fruit seeds. Then soak them in water for about 2 hours and then remove the brown layer. Alternatively the seeds could be pressure cooked in water and salt for a speedy process. Once the brown layer is off, cut them lengthwise. Into a pan, pour some oil and tip in the garlic and saute for a minute. Add in the jack fruit seeds, along with the turmeric, chili powder,coconut slivers and salt if not added.Saute for about 4-5 minutes on medium heat. Add about a quarter cup water. Cover and cook till the seeds are al-dente. Once the water is evaporated, fry the seeds till they are slightly crispy. Check for seasoning and add more salt if required.


Thank you for your time in my space. Would love to hear your reviews and comments!
