Mustard Jackfruit Masala

Raw jackfruit happens to be among my favorite vegetables and the seasonal availability only adds to its exotic appeal. While I usually stick to one of the odia recipes when I cook this vegetable, this time I tried an Andhra style preparation. This is one of Tarla Dalal's recipes. and I have only done a bit of 'hera-pheri' .

Read on for the recipe -

Preparation Time - 20 mins

Ingredients -

  • 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.
