Jackfruit seeds poriyal - Side dish recipe - Vegan Recipe

I normally buy jack fruit at least once a week. I dry the seeds and collect it. Since we had some guest for the last couple of weeks, I ended up buying more Jackfruits. So I had quite a bit of seeds. I wanted to do the kara poriyal with that. I wanted to do something I have tasted a long time ago at my friends house back in India. I had some left over coconut thogaiyal in the fridge. So Instead of making fresh coconut paste I had used it. The poriyal tasted good (exactly same as what I had in my mind). Well yet another new dish!

Jack fruit seeds - 2 cups
Mustard seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
Curry leaves - 10 - 15
Urad dhal - 1 teaspoon
Chana dhal / bengal gram dhal - 1/2 teaspoon
Oil - 2 teaspoon
Salt per taste
Coconut thogaiyal - 1.5 tablespoon
Turmeric powder - 1/4 teaspoon


Peel the outer skin of the seeds. And cut them into small pieces. With enough water and salt cook the seeds. I have used pressure cooker and cook it till 2 whistles. When it cool down drain the excess water ( water will be milky so cannot be used)
Heat the pan. Add oil and when it is hot add mustard seeds. When it start to pop up add urad dhal, chana dhal and curry leaves. Fry till dhals are brown in color. Add cooked seeds. Add turmeric powder and fry for 1 mins. Add coconut paste. Mix well. Fry them in low medium flame till the seeds are crispy. 
Switch it off and serve hot
