Palakottai Podimas/Jackfruit Seeds Curry

Palakottai/Palaakottai or Jackfruit seeds podimas is an easy breezy curry we make often at home coz this dish curry or side dish take just few minutes to get ready if you have cooked jackfruit seeds at home. With usual spices, this podimas makes an excellent side dish to enjoy with a bowl of sambhar rice or hot piping rasam rice.Jackfruit seeds are used usually to make many dishes,they are added in  many gravies or else fried and served as side dish.

Coming to this Podimas, this dish is quickly prepared with cooked and mashed jackfruit seeds. Peeling jackfruit seed's skin may be time consuming, but drying them for a day helps very much to remove the skin easily. Some may use pestle and smash the seeds lightly to remove the skin with minimum effort.My mom often makes this podimas whenever we jackfruit sees abundantly. This dish goes to Tamizhar Samayal Tuesday, an event happening twice a month.Sending to my own event Healthy Diet-Vegetarian Side dish guest hosted by Nandoos..
