Exotic Jackfruit Seed Curry With Curd Rice

Posted on


Sometimes we learn a dish from the most unexpected sources. Recently my house maid who is a good cook herself taught me this dish. I told her we normally fry the jackfruit seeds with salt and pepper but she mentioned we could make a special dish that compliments with curd rice. So she taught me this dish and it 
seemed pretty good to have with curd rice. You can give it a try too …


  • 20 jackfruit seeds
  • 1/2 cup diced potatos
  • 1/2 cup sliced onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped tomatos
  • 4-5 crushed garlic pods
  • 1 tbsp coriander powder
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/4 tsp cummin seeds
  • 1 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • salt to taste 

Peel the soft outer flesh of the jackfruit seed,cut the seeds to 3 parts,heat oil in a pan ,add cumin seeds ,once it splutters add onion and garlic and stir ,once onion becomes translucent add jackfruit seeds,potato,turmeric ,salt and mix nicely.
Now add  water to just submerge the veggies,cover and cook on low flame,stir occasionally till jackfruit seeds become tender,then add tomato ,coriander powder,chilly powder and stir till tomato become mushy,add chopped cilantro ,mix it and serve with curd rice.


1.To make this curry instantly you can pressure cook the seeds n potato before itself.
2.Some time we face difficult to remove the outer flesh of the seed hit the seed with the pestle and it will loosen up and can tear the skin easily.

Curd Rice


  • 1 cup raw rice 
  • 3 cups water
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 tbsp curd 
  • 1/4 tsp mustard seeds
  • 2 tbsp grated carrot
  • 1 tbsp chopped cashew nuts
  • 1 sping curry leaves
  • 2-3 chopped green chillies
  • 1 tsp oil 
  • salt to taste

Wash the rice properly and pressure cook the rice with 3 cups of water with 4 whistles on high flame  and 5 mins in low flame.Once it cools take the rice out and mash it with spatula as soft as possible in a large bowl,now add the milk and mix nice till rice and milk blend nicely.Then add the curd,carrot mix again.
To prepare the tempering heat oil in a small pan ,add mustard seeds,cashew nuts and fry in medium flame till mustard splutters then add green chilli,curry leaves and fry for 30 sec and add to curd rice. 
Let the curd rice sit for 1-2 hours


1.If you can make the curd rice in the morning itself and serve it at lunch time ,it will taste awesome as you made it fully with milk
2.If you have lack of time then in place of milk you can directly make it with curd but have to serve immediately otherwise curd rice will become sour
