Drumstick Jackfruit seeds gravy - Side dish for Chapathi / roti / idli / dosa / Rice

I love jackfruit seeds. But after moving to Singapore I don't get it as I have to take it from Jackfruits that I buy. In any given week I buy jackfruit only one batch with 5 pieces so at the most I get only 5 seeds. My mum told me now a days we do get Jackfruit seeds in India. So this time when she visited me I had asked her to bring some jackfruit seeds. Also this dish is one of her specialty. This can be served as side dish to rice also. If  you are serving with Idli or dosa increase water.
