PONNASA UPKARI

I told u on my earlier blog PONNASA means jackfruit and UPKARI refers sidedish. Thus u readers can learn few konkani words. Here comes my next simple recipe on my left over raw jackfruit. It tastes fabulous and goes well as a sidedish.
INGREDIENTS.

1/4 kg Jackfruit.

1 tsp Mustard seeds.

2 tsp chilli powder.

1 tsp Coconut oil.

2 tbs Water.

Salt to taste.

METHOD.

Pressure cook jackfruit till tender (I took 2 whistle). Some jackfruit takes long time to cook therefore its better to pressure cook, rather than cooking the whole process on a kadai.
and it saves time too. Set aside and let it cool. Later chop them into pieces and keep it a side.

In a pan heat oil and mustard seeds , chilli powder and then the jackfruit piece with salt with a 2 tbs of water so that the mixture does not stick at the bottom. Cover and let it cook for 3 min under low flame.

Serve hot with rice.
