RAW JACKFRUIT STIR FRY / KATHAL KI SABZI / HALASINAKAYI PALYA / IDICHAKKA THORAN

Jackfruit is a seasonal fruit available from March to May. Few days back i had visited my aunt's place who has many jackfruit trees in her backyard .She is also an expert in making "n" number of dishes from it; right from very tender raw jackfruit to the matured golden ones.During our stay i nicely feasted on many yummies ( ha ha.. no points for guessing it ) and also was happy to carry a raw tender jackfruit back to Bangalore. Half of the fruit went for jackfruit sambar , which i shared in the last post and the remaining half went to ...... " Tender Jackfruit Stir Fry " or " Gujje Palya " as we call it locally. We relished this authentic Udupi style stir fry made from the freshest veggie.

Which ever way , you are surely going to love it .True , cleaning process is a bit messy and time consuming but then end result deserves it. A slight mustard flavor and  aroma of coconut oil indeed takes this simple stir fry to a new level . Try for sure to know what i mean.. Here goes the recipe...
