To Temper :
  1. When we cut Jack fruit , a thick “milk” oozes from it. This is sticky in nature and stains. So without forgetting ,before cutting rub generous amount of coconut oil to your hand and grease the cutting knife too.
  2. Cut the raw jack fruit into half and later into medium size long pieces.Remove outer thorny green skin and the center stalk part.
  3. Cut raw jack fruit into bite size pieces and put them into water immediately,else they will dis color. Leave it in water for 5 mins. You can observe that the water would be little brownish now. Discard that water.
  4. Add haldi and cook jack fruit pieces in cooker for 1-2 whistles. If its fresh it will not take much time to cook ( 1 whistle is enough ).
  5. In a mixer,grind coconut,red chillies,dhania ,jeera and rice to a smooth paste by adding little water.
  6. Transfer cooked jack fruit pieces into a vessel. Add salt,tamarind and jaggery and boil for 3-4 mins.
  7. Now add ground masala to the jackfruit. Mix well. Add some more water. Keep it on medium flame and bring to boil. Taste test. Switch off.
  8. Temper .Add a spoon of coconut oil. When its hot add mustard . Once they splutter add curry leaves .Switch off. Pour it over sambar.
  9. Serve piping hot Tender Raw Jackfruit Sambar with steaming rice .
