Jackfruit Seed Lemon Dhal

Jackfruit Seed Lemon Dhal
Lemon Dhal is my all time favorite and we generally use varieties of vegetables for this recipe. This time I tried with jackfruit seeds and it turned out be very tasty. Jackfruit seeds are combined with small yellow dhal and cooked with green chili’s and ginger. The dish finally gets a good flavor when we temper them with mustard cumin seeds along with lemon juice.

Before I left for vacation to India I had a bulk of jackfruit seeds collected over time.
My tips to store jackfruit seeds where sunlight is lacking:
In Singapore, we get jackfruits all over the year (I think almost whole year ;) ).  I do not have enough sunlight to dry them. So the best way to preserve them is to remove their skin put them in a box with a tissue paper in the fridge. However this would be good only for 15 – 20 days. So I store them in the freezer by placing them in a zip lock.
