Tender Jackfruit and Drumstick Curry Recipe

This Coconut based gravy seasoned with garlic is a gastronomical delight!! The succulent pieces of tender Jackfruit and the flavour of fleshy drumsticks are best eaten with hot rice. Byadgi chillies give the gravy not only a beautiful colour but also the required texture!

Ingredients :

  • 18 bite sized pieces of tender Jackfruit
  • 2 Drumsticks
  • Half of a large coconut grated
  • 12 Byadgi chillies roasted
  • A heaped tsp of tamarind paste
  • Salt
  • 20 cloves of garlic
  • 3 tbsps coconut oil

Method :

Pressure cook the tender Jackfruit in a glass of water with salt, to two whistles. Chop the Drumstick into bite sized pieces and cook them separately in an open pan with a little salt. Grind the grated coconut, roasted red chillies and tamarind to a smooth paste. Drop it into the cooked tender Jackfruit. Add the cooked Drumstick. Thin down the gravy to the required consistency. Adjust salt and boil well. Heat the coconut oil. Crush the garlic gently and drop it into the oil. Roast to a rich golden brown. Tip it into the boiling curry. Boil well for a couple of minutes and keep aside for half an hour for the flavours to infuse.
