Jackfruit Seed Curry


Jackfruit Seed is highly nutritious and I generally collect & refrigerate them whenever we buy the jackfruit. We get in Singapore during this season mainly.
The fiber in the seed helps fill you up, making it easier to lose weight, and may lower your risk for heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and constipation. Jackfruit seeds also provide resistant starch, which may help improve blood sugar control and keep your gut healthy.
There are various ways in which you can cook this seed and this post is a simple tomato based curry which goes well when we mix with plain rice or with curd rice.
