Panasa Pottu Kura (Raw Jackfruit Curry - Andhra Style)

          This is my version of Raw Jackfruit Curry made in a typical Andhra Style. This fruit in the veggie form is very popular down South, especially in Andhra / Telangana. Here in this recipe, I added some sambar powder and made it quite spicy and tangy. You can go easy on the spice level and enjoy as a side dish with either rice or chapatis. So check out the step by step pictorial recipe to prepare it. 

  • 1 small Jackfruit, cut into big chunks 
  • 2 tbsp. oil
  • 1 tsp. mustard seeds
  • 1 sprig curry leaves
  • pinch of asafoetida
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 green chilies, chopped
  • 1 tsp. tomato paste
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp. red chili powder
  • 1 tsp. sambar powder
  • 1 tbsp. lime juice
  • 1 tbsp. fresh grated coconut
  • 1 tbsp. coriander leaves, chopped

          Boil the jackfruit with required quantity of water, pinch of turmeric powder and 1 tsp. of oil. Alternately pressure cook for 3-4 whistles. When cool, drain the water and cut them into small pieces. Keep aside.

          Heat remaining oil in a non-stick pan and temper with mustard seeds. After it stops spluttering, add the asafoetida, curry leaves, onion, garlic and green chilies.

          Saute over a low flame till light brown. Now add the tomato paste and mix well. Add the boiled jackfruit pieces, salt, turmeric powder and sambar powder.

          Continue to stir fry for 3-4 minutes by sprinkling some water halfway. Add the lime juice and red chili powder. 

          Combine everything well. Add coconut and coriander leaves. Mix well and serve as a side dish with either rice or chapattis.
