Jackfruit Seeds Subzi(Palaa Kottai)
A very tasty and tempting subzi!
When I was young, I used to collect the jackfruit seeds and go upstairs without anyone’s knowledge. I would light up the fire using match sticks, papers, sticks etc. and literally live in a stone-age period for few moments just to boil these seeds and have it. I am a big fan of jackfruit seeds. I can never say I am done. How much ever you give, I will have…
Its been several years since I tasted these jackfruit seeds as I do not get it here. After 6 and a half years, I had jackfruit seeds in my hand. I had very few say only 8-9 seeds. I did not know whether I should make kuzhambu, kootu, or subzi. Finally, I decided to make subzi. Now, here I am, sharing the tempting and mouth-watering Jackfruit Subzi here. If you have not tasted jackfruit seeds subzi before, it is not too late, try it now….I am sure you will love it.
