In Kerala, jackfruit and jackfruit seeds are very popular and favourite item in summer season. They are making a lot of variety and tasty dishes by using jackfruit and its seeds.  Jackfruit seeds are very healthy and it has a lot of health benefits. It can prevent very danger cancer and it is scientifically and medically proved. Long years ago, peoples were making dishes by this and new generation also following the same methods now a days. Jackfruit seeds and mango curry, jackfruit seed payasam, pudding and masala are the main dishes by jackfruit seeds. We can keep it for long terms so can make dishes in other seasons. It will not damage so fast so it will last for long term. It contains a lot of protein. Here, I am showing very tasty jackfruit seed masala roast. It is an excellent combination with hot plane rice for lunch. I like this roast very much to have with hot rice. Usually I was making a stir fry with coconut and green chilli then my mother tried this method to get a different and variety taste. I learnt this recipe from my mother and I made it. It was really tasty and also looking very attractive. To get an exact taste of this curry we need to slice jackfruit seeds lengthy and thin and also it should not overcook. I used traditional and natural ingredient so it is completely a traditional recipe. It is medium spicy curry and very taste. Its taste will change based on spiciness. It has the mixed flavour of cumin seeds powder and garlic. It has an attractive smell. I used pure coconut oil so everyone can use this. This roast is very special to anyone who likes to have jackfruit and jackfruit seeds dishes. It is entirely different roast from other jackfruit seed curries.
