Jackfruit Seeds Cooked With Mustard Paste - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
Having grown up in Odisha, I have eaten quite a few curries and fries that have jackfruit seeds as a ingredient. Apart from the sorisa bhaja, masala bhaja, raee and just the plain roasted ones prepared in a wood fired/coal fired stove, it has a propensity of making it's way into just about every vegetarian dish. Very simple and frugal, one just needs some Badi (urad dal vadi) apart from the regular ingredients from one's pantry to prepare this dish. While I choose to call it a 'Raee' because of the ingredients used, it is almost dry in consistency and hence often considered as a 'bhaja'.
