Chakkakuru Manga Curry ( Jackfruit Seeds and Mango Curry)

I recently found a frozen bag of Jackfruit Seeds at a local India grocers and this curry was the first thing that came to my mind. Heres the recipe...

Things you will need:

Mango-2 ripe and juicy, Medium sized , peeled and cubed
Chakkakuru ( Jackfruit Seeds )- 6 to 8 ; peeled and cut in half
Coconut-1 cup shredded
Cumin seeds- 2 tsp
Curry Leaves
Salt to taste
Red whole chillies-2 or 3
Green Chillies- 3 or 4 slit in half lengthwise
Fenugreek powder- 1 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1 tsp
Oil- 1 tbsp , preferably Coconut Oil

Preparation Method:

In a cooking vessel add mango ,jackfruit seeds, salt, turmeric powder, fenugreek powder,green chillies ( save one for later use)and curry leaves and water.
Make sure mango is just immersed in the water.
Do not add too much water.
Bring this to boil and cook until Jackfruit Seeds are nice and tender.
In the mean while grind the shredded coconut , remaining green chili and cumin seeds to a fine paste.
Add water just enough to grind to a fine paste.
Once mango and jackfruit seeds is cooked add this paste to it and simmer.
For garnishing , heat oil in a pan ,add red whole chillies and mustard. Once the mustard splutters,add this to the simmering mango curry.

Chakkakuru Manga curry is now ready to be served with steamed rice and Koorka Mezhkupuratti.
