Remember my yesterday’s post of Jackfruit seeds rasam where I had shared just half the recipe of it and had kept aside cooked jack seeds to use later ? So as promised , today i am back with part 2 of it – using the cooked jackfruit seeds in making ” Jackfruit seeds Stir Fry / Halasina beejada Palya ” . This stir fry tastes similar to potato / sweet potato stir fry . My kids love this lip smacking dish in their lunch or even as a snack . Do try this simple ,quick,healthy ,nutritious stir fry… here we go..
But the most boring and time consuming part in jackfruit is its cleaning and cutting. Once that’s taken care of, Making any dish is just a step away.Do follow this video and give a try. Cutting at home is actually not that difficult afterall the end result is worth all the trouble ????
