RAW JACKFRUIT SAMBAR / HALASINAKAYI ( GUJJE ) SAMBAR - TYPE 2

It's that time of the year , when Jack fruit has started entering the market . But hey wait , it's not a recipe from Ripe jack fruit i am sharing today but a dish using raw tender Jack fruit .Raw jack fruit , an exotic vegetable in India is known as Kathal ( hindi ) / Halasinakayi ( Kannada ) / Panasakaya ( telugu ) / pala musu ( tamil ) / kadagi ( konkani) / chakka etc across various states . It has a great texture , flavor and is a very good dietary fiber source for vegetarians . But unfortunately not many people are aware that many delicacies can be made from raw jack fruit . So today here i am sharing Mysore style " Raw Jack fruit Sambar " .... an awesome combination of flavor and texture...tastes just divine...

E HULI SAMBAR

Do you rememeber that last jackfruit season , i had shared raw jackfruit stir fry and raw jackfruit sambar ? You might ask me now if jackfruit sambar is already shared why am i reposting it again now ? Hmm... though the names are same , both the recipes are entirely different . The earlier one was a Mangalore - Udupi style Gujje Sambar and this time its Mysore -Bangalore style " Raw jackfruit Sambar " . Both the recipes are unique and tastes equally good in thier own way . Do try for yourself and i am sure you too will be in dilemma like me which to rate high ?? Forget the time spent on cleaning process... the end result is worth it...
