Kathal ke beej ki sabzi – Jackfruit seeds delicately stir fried in a hot spicy sauce.
Kathal ke beej ki sabzi- Jack fruit/Kathal is a exotic vegetable,popular and enjoyed in many regions of India.It is a very good source of dietery fibre so a good option for vegetarians.
Ripe jackfruit/kathal is used as a fruit and the tender young jackfruit is used to make stir fries,curries, pulao and pickle .
A few days ago my daughter’s friend went to India on a holiday, and while returning from there he brought a jackfruit for us. But unfortunately it was a ripe and sweet jackfruit and could not be used for cooking, so with a heavy heart, I had to trash it. But since he brought it with so much love, I thought of trying to use at least some part of it.
So I took out all the seeds from kathal and thought of making something out of them, so I tried to make a stir fry from the boiled seeds and it turned out to be pretty delicious!
few days back I have posted kathal curry , in that post I have mention how to clean the seeds and kathal. now don’t discard the seeds of kathal instead make this delicious kathal ke beej ki subzi
