tender jackfruit palya recipe

It’s the season of jackfruit, and I try to prepare all possible dishes that I can make with jackfruit. At the start of the season, we get the tender jackfruit, which is also called kadgi, this is even before the seeds are formed.

A lot of dishes are prepared with tender Jackfruit like the gassi, upkari, pickle, chakko which is a GSB Konkani speciality. I have previously posted the recipe for this.

This time I thought of preparing another variant dish with the tender jack that is jackfruit palya. To give you a small intro to this dish, this is a brahmin preparation. My mom is a native of Shimoga and one of her neighbours had cooked this dish, while I was a little girl and mom writing down the recipe with her sister as she was preparing this dish. I still do remember that day! From then I always asked my mom to prepare this dish during this season.

I have previously shared with you the recipe for Kadgi Chakko [ Raw Jackfruit Sukka – Kadgi Chakko Authentic Konkani Style ] which looks similar after the preparation, but both the dishes have a different and unique taste.

Coming to the tender jackfruit recipe, this is prepared with mustard, Coconut, red chillies, jaggery and tamarind. The cutting of the jackfruit is a bit of messy work. Apply some oil on your palm and the cutting knife to make your job easy, neat and tidy as jackfruit contains a lot of sticky gum. Once you are done with the cutting, hold the knife on a candle or gas stove. The gum starts to melt. Immediately wipe it off with a tissue or newspaper.

This dish is dry and a good accompaniment with rice and Dal
