Chop raw jackfruit in the middle into 2 halves, wipe clean the white sap that drips off using a tissue paper.Chop it further into halves. Chop each piece further into halves depending on their size. Clean off the sticky sap using tissue papers.Chop off the inner, center, ridge portion, but keep a thin layer so that the inner compartments of jackfruit are held together firmly and they don't disintegrate all together.The inner jackfruit core is the hard, white portion at the top of each piece.Then chop raw jackfruit into cubes and add them into a vessel containing water.(Save the Jackfruit husk recipe and Jackfruit seeds we will make two different curries with later)

Pressure cook them with salt and 1 cup of water for 1 whistle. Do not overcook raw jackfruit. or you can cook in normal pan to avoid over cook.We want soft, well cooked jackfruit.Add 2 tbsps of oil and turmeric powder,while cooking raw jackfruit to help you clean your pressure cooker easily later on.Oil prevents any gum from sticking to your cooker.

Prepare the masala:

Dry roast coriander seeds, cumin seeds and cloves in a small non-stick pan till fragrant.Break red chillies, remove seeds and put into a mixer jar. Add ginger, garlic cloves, roasted spices, coconut, tamarind pulp and a little water and grind into a smooth paste.


Heat coconut oil in another non-stick pan. Slit green chillies.Add mustard seeds and curry leaves to the hot oil and let the seeds splutter.Add onions and saute till golden. Add green chillies and tomato puree and continue to saute till oil separates.Drain the jackfruit cubes from the water and add to the second pan and mix. Add ground paste and mix well. Rinse the mixer jar with 1 cup water and add to the pan and mix well. Adjust salt.Cover and cook on low heat for 10-15 minutes.Serve hot with rice or chapati.

  • You can also add onion paste for gravy curry.

  • To avoid tamarind you can add tomato puree(You can also add ginger and garlic mint while grinding).
