Jack Fruit Seeds Stir Fry Recipe

As I am sitting beside my window writing this blog post, I could feel a nice cool breeze flowing in through the window. It has been raining since evening here in Bangalore.

Though it’s not a heavy rain, but then it is enough to provide relief from the hot weather that we have been experiencing over the past several weeks.

And as I sit here writing the blog post and enjoying the nice rain outside, I am being tempted to shutdown my computer and go to the balcony.

Why?

Because the rain is now transformed to a nice drizzle and the breeze is nice and cool. What better weather to enjoy a cup of tea and some nice pakoras.

I will have to rush to my kitchen and made some pakoras real quick and I am definitely going to do it as soon as I finish my blog post for today.

I am sure you can understand how excited I am to enjoy the weather as the rain is continuing.

As the name says this recipe is made of Jackfruit seeds. A delicious way to use seeds which not many are aware of!

Jackfruit and its seeds contain plenty of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Its a healthy food to consume, when available.

This recipe is very famous in Kerala. I won’t say that this is an easy recipe to make but it tastes really good.  This can be served as a side along with rice, dal etc. And my favorite way to eat this recipe is just like that when it is hot and crispy. 🙂
