Chakka Kuru curry/ Jackfruit seed curry (Malabar Style)

 Chakka Kuru/ Jackfruit seeds Curry

Chakka Kuru screams native to me. There are several dishes that chakka Kuru are usually made of in my native, but fried chakka Kuru always is my favorite and then comes this chakka Kuru curry. 

It is said that Jackfruit seeds can gastric issues, but it's benefits are numerous too. Ebery part of  Jackfruit is so nutrious that it's said to be a very underrated fruit that many do not know of its benefits.

This chakka Kuru curry is not the perfect way my mom makes, hers is too simple, that some may not like, but I love that version too. This recipe is avery common recipe, but thought of posting for some of you who had asked for its recipe.
