Panasa Pottu Kura (Green Jackfruit Curry - Andhra Style)

               A delicious green jackfruit curry cooked with some sambar powder that makes for an exotic side dish. I made it a bit spicy and tangy to tickle the taste buds, but you can go easy on the spices. They are best had with any Indian bread or with rice. It is a traditional curry quite popular down south and which is cooked in many variations. So check out the step by step pictorial recipe to prepare it.
