Hello and welcome to my food corner again.As summer has arrived in my country and many types of fruits and vegetables are available now so today I will be sharing an Indian authentic recipe of jack fruit curry with flax seed which I think you guys will like, specially ladies.I don’t think it is a delicacy but when you have no veggies in your fridge except jack fruit and you can’t get any ideas pretty fast then this recipe can come very handy.It is spicy,tasty and tangy.Earlier in my blog I have written about flax seed chutney and a recipe of pumpkin curry with flax seed. I use flax seed generously in my kitchen as it is very healthy, reducing the level of cholesterols in the body and having many such beneficial properties.So let us start with our recipe :-
Ingredients:-For the curry.
- Jack fruit – 250 gms.
- Onions(chopped) – 1.
- Flax seed Powder – 100 gms.(refer to the recipe of pumpkin with flax seed)
- Turmeric Powder – 1 tsp.
- Red Chilly Powder – 1 tsp.
- Cumin Powder – 1 tsp.
- Tamarind Paste – 1 tsp.
- Garam Masala – 1 tsp.
- Salt – According to need.
- Vegetable Oil – 2 tbsp.
For the tempering :-
- Five Spices or Paanchphoran – 1 tsp.
- Asafoetida or Hing – A pinch.
- Bay Leaf – 2.
- Oil -1 tsp.
Step 1 – Wash,scrape and cut the jack fruit in medium-sized pieces.Boil them in a pressure cooker.Mash the jack fruit coarsely.
Step 2 – In a kadhai add some paanchphoran,bay leaf ,oil and a pinch of asafoetida. When it splutters add the chopped onions and fry.Now add salt,turmeric powder,red chilly powder,cumin powder,tamarind paste and fry all for a bit.Now add the garam masala and flax seed powder and fry again.Now add the semi-mashed jack fruit to the gravy and lastly add some water.Simmer for a while.Switch the gas off when done.It should be made into a thick gravy and you can garnish it with coriander or any herb you like.
Our jack fruit curry with flax seed is ready.It is best served with steamed rice and mashed potatoes with tadka,though you can have it with chapatis and dal also.
Note:-I have shared the method of making flax seed powder in my recipe of pumpkin with flax seed curry.So you can refer to that recipe to get idea of the method of making it.
