Jackfruit Coconut Curry

Ingredients

1 tablespoon Ginger Garlic Paste
2 tablespoons Red Chilli Powder
1 tablespoon Coriander Powder
2 Green Chillies, slit down the middle (don't chop!)
1 pinch Turmeric Powder
3 tablespoons Coconut Paste
Salt, to taste
For Seasoning:
1 Cloves
1/2 teaspoon Saunf
Oil, to taste

Preparation

1
Remove the outer green skin of the raw jackfruit. Apply oil both on the knife and hand in order to avoid the gum from the fruit while removing the fruit's hard skin. Chop it into bite size pieces. After removing the skin, immediately start the cooking process or it will turn color.
2
Heat oil in a pan and season all the ingredients given for seasoning. Add chopped onions and green chilli and fry till transparent.
3
Once onions are done, add tomatoes, ginger garlic paste, chilli powder, turmeric powder, and coriander powder. Fry till raw smell goes away and oil separates. Add chopped raw jackfruit and fry till all comes together.
4
Transfer the mixture from pan to a pressure cooker. (You can also do all the above process in a pressure cooker directly.) Add required water and pressure cook for two whistles.
5
Open the pressure cooker, add coconut paste and bring to boil for 5 mins.
6
Garnish with Coriander and curry leaves.

About

Raw Jack fruit is one of my favorites. My mom used to make Kootu, poriyal, pulao and subji with it.But here is my version of Jackfruit curry, a very spicy one with coconut. It goes well with chappathi, roti, kulcha, idiyappam, appam, dosa and idli.
