Jack fruit is always incredible, that too, as it is widely cultivated in Kerala, its usage is massive. Especially the jack fruit seeds are very tasty to have. Every time when we get a jackfruit my Amma never use to throw it out, as she prepares excellent dishes with frying, boiling either ways. This recipe is such a unique recipe as it has just the boiled egg and the jackfruit seed as a key ingredient. It’s very easy to make and it’s such a simple dish with great taste.

Before you get into preparing the recipe, the most important thing you need to do is, soak the jackfruit seeds in hot water for about 10 minutes to remove the skin of it. It’s perfect to make, when you don’t have any vegetables to cook at home as its very time consuming and everyone loves to have too. If you cook it with coconut oil it will give you the exact taste else, you could skip using it and use your own choice of oil. You should definitely try this if you are addict to authentic kerala recipes.
