Edichakka Thovaran ( Tender Raw Jack Fruit Curry)


 














This recipe is famous in Kerala. Chakka means jack fruit and we use tender raw jack fruit for this recipe. I love this curry very much.During the  jack fruit season, I prepare this dish. In March we went to Kerala and our cousin prepared this edichakka thovaran especially for me. In Mumbai you can get cleaned and cut edichakka to make it easy for us to prepare.In USA you can get cut frozen edichakka pieces (daily delight)and I tried with that it came out pretty good.
