As I am sitting beside my window writing this blog post, I could feel a nice cool breeze flowing in through the window. It has been raining since evening here in Bangalore.

Though it’s not a heavy rain, but then it is enough to provide relief from the hot weather that we have been experiencing over the past several weeks.

And as I sit here writing the blog post and enjoying the nice rain outside, I am being tempted to shutdown my computer and go to the balcony.

Because the rain is now transformed to a nice drizzle and the breeze is nice and cool. What better weather to enjoy a cup of tea and some nice pakoras.

I will have to rush to my kitchen and made some pakoras real quick and I am definitely going to do it as soon as I finish my blog post for today.

I am sure you can understand how excited I am to enjoy the weather as the rain is continuing.

Anyways, let me tell you the name of the recipe I am going to share with you all today. It is “Jack Fruit Seeds Stir Fry Recipe”.

I learnt this recipe from my mom-in-law. To be frank I never imagined that we could make a recipe using Jackfruit seeds. Because most of us would be of the impression that seeds are to be thrown.

If you were like me and thought so, then you are definitely going to enjoy this tasty recipe.

Jack Fruit Seeds Stir Fry Recipe

As the name says this recipe is made of Jackfruit seeds. A delicious way to use seeds which not many are aware of!

Jackfruit and its seeds contain plenty of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Its a healthy food to consume, when available.

This recipe is very famous in Kerala. I won’t say that this is an easy recipe to make but it tastes really good.  This can be served as a side along with rice, dal etc. And my favorite way to eat this recipe is just like that when it is hot and crispy. 🙂
