Kadgi Chakko/ Green Jackfruit Dry Curry/ ಹಲಸಿನ ಕಾಯಿ ಪಲ್ಯ

Kadgi chakko a Konkani dish & is most of the amchi’s fav. Varieties of delicacies are prepared with jackfruit. I’ll post some in my future posts. Here we couldn’t get fresh jackfruit but when I saw canned ones I just grabbed them because I love them. I have prepared chakko many a times at Amma’s place(mom’s place). So I wasn’t tensed as to how to prepare. And it was long time since I ate chakko. So decided to prepare.

Here is what we need:
Green jackfruit -1/2 piece
Coconut scraped -1 cup
Chilies – 7
Tamarind -2 peanut sized
Coriander seeds -2tsp
Salt to taste
Urad dal -1tsp
Oil -1 tsp
For seasoning:
Mustard seeds -1tsp
Curry leaves – 10
Oil -1tsp
As I used canned jackfruit a burden of peeling the jackfruit was off. Incase u are using fresh jackfruit then remove the skin and middle stick of it.
Cut jackfruit into cubes & boil until soft. When cooled mash these & keep aside.
For the masala- Fry urad dal,coriander seeds, chilies in 1tsp oil. Grind coconut, the fried items with tamarind to coarse mixture.
In a bottom pan add mashed jackfruit& the masala. Mix until the jackfruits absorb the masala. Add salt & boil for 10 minutes. Be careful that it doesn’t stick to the vessel.
Remove from flame.
For the seasoning –Heat oil add mustard seeds once they splatter add curry leaves & season it o the chakko.
A tasty chakko goes good with white rice with a combi of daalithoy.
