Gidigi / Kadgi Sukke( Kochi version )

                   Its  the season of jackfruits again ! Now we are getting small tender  Jack fruits  and time for us to prepare a favourite dish made in & around Kochi , Kerala  by us GSBs !

Ingredients :-

  1. Small tender jack fruit – 1
  2. Grated coconut -1 cup 
  3. Red chillies – 10  or as per taste 
  4. Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp
  5. Mustard seeds- 1tsp 
  6. Urad dal – 1/2 tsp
  7. Oil for seasoning

Method :- 

  •  Deskin the jack fruit and cut into large pieces . Applying oil to hands & knife will help in avoiding a messy job because of the white latex  present in unripe jack fruits .
  • Pressure cook the pieces until soft . 
  • Grind the coconut adding the  red chillies , tamarind & turmeric powder to a coarse paste .
  •  In a Kadai heat the oil for seasoning  and  splutter the mustard seeds . 
  • Add the urad dal & let it turn brown , Now add the cooked pieces & coconut paste . 
  • Cover  and let cook on simmer . Add little more oil if necessary so that it gets roasted well. Asafoetida / hing  may also be added as per taste .
  • Serve hot with rice as a side dish .

Note :- 
  A similar dish with little changes is made by the Mangalore side GSBs s which  you can find in this blog written by my friend Jayashri Shenoy  as Kadge Chakko
