Today's recipe is simple and easy to make dry curry or dry side dish recipe that is prepared using Jackfruit seeds.  Jackfruit seeds are edible and is used in Indian Cooking to make variety of recipes. Or it can be boiled with some salt and served as a snack. I love boiled jackfruit seeds for snacking and also I am lazy to make curry or kuzhambu with it. So always ended up eating as plain boiled jackfruit seeds.
This time for a change, tried this dry curry recipe for lunch along with Rasam. This dry curry makes an excellent side dish with rice and rasam or curd. I did not add tomatoes but you can also add 1 chopped tomatoes and make it like thokku.
