Jackfruit Seed Raw Mango Curry also known in Kerala as Chakkakuru Manga Curry

Jackfruit Seed Mango Curry (Chakkakuru Manga Curry)

Did you know you could use the seeds of a jackfruit to make delicious meals? That’s precisely what I used to make this Jackfruit Seed and Raw Green Mango Curry, otherwise known as Chakkakuru Manga Curry. Never had jackfruit seeds? The flavor is a lot like a roasted chesnut with its dense, starchy texture. In Kerala, there are many ways jackfruit seeds are prepared such as in curries like this one, a simple thoran, or fried like an ularthiyathu. Another traditional addition to the dish is adding in dried baby prawns.

Overall, my favorite thing about this Chakkakuru Manga Curry is how complex the flavor is, yet it only takes about 30 minutes to make.

INGREDIENTS

  • Jackfruit Seeds, 2 cups, sliced lengthwise (I use the frozen seeds by Daily Delight)
  • Curry Leaves, 1 sprig
  • Turmeric, 1/2 tsp
  • Salt, 2 tsp
  • Water, 1 cup + 2 cups
  • Raw Green Mango, 1, peeled/diced
  • Morninga/Drumsticks, 2 (I use the frozen drumsticks by Deep Foods)
  • Jaggery/Brown Sugar, 1 tbsp
Paste
  • Grated Coconut, 1 cup
  • Shallots, 2, diced
  • Green Chilies, 2, diced
  • Ginger, 1/2 inch, minced
  • Cumin Seeds, 1 tsp
  • Turmeric, 1/2 tsp
Season
  • Coconut Oil, 2 tbsp
  • Shallots, 1, thinly sliced
  • Curry Leaves, 1 sprig
  • Mustard Seeds, 1 tsp
  • Fenugreek Seeds, 1/4 tsp
  • Dry Red Chilies, 2, broken in half

HOW TO MAKE IT

Prep. If using fresh jackfruit seeds, be sure to remove the skin/scrape off the brown on the seed. Slice the seeds lengthwise into 3-4 pieces.

Boil. In a sauce pot on medium high heat, add in the jackfruit seeds, curry leaves, turmeric, salt, and 1 cup of water. Cover and cook for about 10 minutes or until the seeds soften. Once the seeds are soft, add in the diced raw green mango, moringa, and 2 more cups of water. Cover again and cook for about 10 minutes or until the mango softens. You should be able to mash the seeds and mango with the back of your cooking spoon.

Paste. Add all of the ingredients under “paste” to a blender and turn into a paste. Mix in a little water to help mix the ingredients if needed. Add this paste to the cooking pot and mix evenly. As soon as the curry comes to a boil, turn off the heat. Mix in the jaggery. Check for salt.

Season. In a small pan on high heat, add the coconut oil. Once the oil is hot, add in the shallots. Saute until lightly golden. Add in the curry leaves, mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds, and dry red chilies. Mix until the mustard seeds pop. Once they pop, pour this mixture over the curry. Done!

When I was a kid, one of the first things my mom taught me how to make was a hot cup of chaya (homestyle tea). It was like a rite of passage…and an invitation to her colorful, spice-filled kitchen. The most exciting part back then was daringly pouring the steamy, caramel-colored goodness from one steel cup to another so I could cool it down and get that classic, frothy texture to sit atop the tea. It’s a recollection of my childhood every time I do it. That same magical feeling still shines through my recipes, both new and old. There’s just nothing like creating a dish so full of evocative flavor and love. It’s what gives me joy and the inspiration to share this experience with you every day! It’s something I hope offers you adventure, a little piece of home, and maybe even something a little familiar.
