Add the jack fruit seeds and half cup of water into a pan and cover and cook until the seeds turn soft (about 15 minutes)Jack fruit seeds take longer to cook than mango pieces so we have to precook it.

Add salt to taste and the cooked jack fruit seeds with any water that remain in the pan and mix.
