Palakottai Mangai Curry, Jackfruit Seeds And Mango Curry

          The next dish that I tried this time with the bag of Palakottai/Jackfruit Seeds that I bought was this  Palakottai Mangai Curry/ Jackfruit Seeds And Raw Mango Curry. Both mangoes and jackfruits are in season around the same time and this is a very tasty dish to try out with it. The coconut paste and the coconut oil used in the curry gives a wonderful flavor to the curry and it goes very well with rice along with some spicy vegetable curry..

Need To Have

  • Palakottai/Jackfruit Seeds - 20 - 22
  • Raw Mango Pieces - 1 cup
  • Turmeric Powder - 1/4 teaspoon
  • Green Chilly - 1
  • Mustard Seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Shallots/Small Onions - 5, chopped
  • Curry Leaves - 10
  • Salt to taste
  • Coconut Oil - 1 to 2 teaspoons

To Grind

  • Grated Coconut - 1/2 cup
  • Dried Red Chillies - 3
  • Cumin Seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Garlic - 3 cloves

Original Recipe here.


          I have shown the jackfruit seeds in the picture, you can either peel them whole, or cut into two, peel the outer tough white skin, then you can either use it with the brown skin or peel that also, boil the seeds in water for 5 to 7 minutes, then you can scrap the brown skin easily. For this dish, I have scrapped the outer brown skin too.

          Cook the jackfruit seeds, mango pieces along with green chilly, turmeric powder, salt and some water.

          Grind together all the ingredients given under 'to grind ' into a fine paste. Once the seeds are cooked, add the ground paste and some more water and cook for another 5 to 7 minutes and when the curry has come to a medium-thick pouring consistency.

          Heat the coconut oil, add the mustard seeds, when it starts sputtering, add the chopped shallots and saute till they turn translucent, then add the curry leaves, mix and add this to the cooked curry. Serve it with some plain rice along with some spicy curry and pappads.
