This is often prepared during any of the festivals or during ceremonies. Since jackfruit is seasonal, this can be prepared even with suran (yam). The most liked combination is of course jackfruit and chickpea. I found canned green jackfruit in one of the Indian Grocery store and I prepared this on Ganesh Festival.
1 cup chickpea (soaked overnight)
1/2 cup jackfruit cut into small cubes
1 cup grated coconut
7-8 red chillies
1 tea spoon thick tamarind extract
1 tea spoon cooking oil
4-5 curry leaves
1/4 tea spoon mustard seeds
Pressure cook chickpea and jackfruit upto 3 whistles.
Make a paste of grated coconut, tamarind extract and red chillies.
Add this to cooked chickpea and jackfruit and boil it for 10-15 minutes on simmer.
In a skillet heat oil, add mustard seeds and curry leaves.
Add this seasoning to the above mixture.
Preparation Time: 40 mins (excludes soaking time)
