  1. Jack fruit seeds/Chakkakuru - 2 cups cleaned and sliced.
  2. Shallots - 5 crushed or sliced
  3. Garlic - 3 cloves crushed
  4. Chilly powder - 1 tsp
  5. pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
  6. Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
  7. Oil - 3 tbsp
  8. Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
  9. curry leaves - 2 springs
  10. Salt - to taste

Cook the jackfruit seeds in 1/2 cup water with salt and turmeric powder until it is soft .(I used fresh seeds and it took around 15 minutes to cook on a medium flame.)
By the time it cooks the mix should become dry , if not cook in an open pan until water is gone.
Heat oil in a frying pan and add the mustard seeds.
When it splutters add the crushed garlic and shallots and stirfry for 2 minutes.
Add in the cooked jackfruit seeds and curry leaves.
Sprinkle the chilly powder and pepper powder on top and strifry until slightly crispy (about 10 minutes).
Serve with rice.
