Jack fruit seeds are in season. Last week when I was in India, I saw jack fruits in the daily morning hotel breakfast. When I checked outside I realized it is in season now. So I had the seeds in a fruit shop. They kept about 1 kg seeds. Since the seeds is quite fresh it got cooked fast. Otherwise cook it with turmeric powder and salt before adding it to kulambu. It is a simple yet very flavourful gravy / Kuzhambu. I didn't add coconut but if you prefer you can add coconut milk while adding jaggery.
