It is jackfruit season!
Jackfruits are available aplenty these days, a fruit whose gorgeous golden kernels I love to bits. I also love cooking with the seeds of the jackfruit, and present to you today one of my most favourite dishes using them – Pala Kottai Sambar or Tamilnadu Style Jackfruit Seeds Sambar.
Pala Kottai Sambar is a heritage Tamilnadu delicacy, somewhat of a ‘lost recipe’. It is considered quite the delicacy in the Tamilian households that still continue to make it, and why not? The nutty seeds of the jackfruit lend themselves beautifully to the tangy, spicy sambar, a heavenly treat when mixed with some piping hot steamed rice and ghee. So good you don’t even need a curry or any other accompaniment to go with it!
