Mustard Jackfruit Masala
Read on for the recipe -
Preparation Time - 20 mins
- 1 1/2 cup raw jackfruit (cubed)
- 1 tsp urad dal
- 1 1/2 tsp black mustard seeds ( I recommend yellow which is less pungent )
- 3 dry red chillis (i used Byedgi)
- 1 sprig curry leaves
- 2-3 garlic cloves (slightly crushed)
- a generous pinch of asafoetida
- 1/3 tsp turmeric
- 2 tsp oil
- salt to taste
Preparation - Wash the jackfruit pieces and transfer to a pressure cooker along with 2 cups water, turmeric and 1/2 tsp salt. Cook on medium flame for 1 whistle.
Keep aside till steam escapes. Drain the excess water.
Grind 2 dry chilis, 1 tsp mustard seeds along with 2 tsp water. Keep aside.
Cooking - Heat a wok. Add the mustard seeds and broken red chili. Follow it with the garlic, urad dal, curry leaves and asafoetida.
Add the boiled jackfruit and mustard-chili paste. Toss it for 4-5 mins.
Serve hot with white rice.
Note - The mustard need to be ground into a fine paste unlike what it appears in the picture. As I was having a little trouble with my grinder on that day, it did not come out fine.
