Jackfruit 700 Gram
Gram dal 100 Gram
Garlic ginger paste 1 1⁄2 Tablespoon
Dry kashmiri chilies 8
Coriander seeds 1 Tablespoon , dried, coarsely ground
Sesame seeds 1 Tablespoon , broiled
Garam masala 1 Tablespoon (Prakash's)
Peppercorns 1 Teaspoon , coarsely ground
Fresh turmeric/1/2 teaspoon dried turmeric powder 1 Inch , dried
Amchur powder 1 Tablespoon
Curry leaves stem 3
Salt To Taste
Ghee 1 Tablespoon


Skin the jackfruit with an oiled, sharp knife and oiled hands. Remove the fruit and cut each into two pieces after removing the seeds. Most people cook the seeds also but I don't do it.

Cook the fruit and the gram dal, which has been soaked for atleast one hour, in a pressure cooker. Add salt and two cups of water and the ginger-garlic paste. Allow to dry till tender.

Grind the masala with half a cup of water. Retain the water with which you have washed the grinding stone.

Place 3 tablespoons of ghee in a large dekchi. Add the curry leaves and allow to splutter. Then add the ground masala and lower the flame and allow to cook for 5 minutes. Add the cooked gram and jackfruit and taste for salt. Allow to simmer for 10 minutes.

Serve with rotis or rice.
