Mashed Jackfruit is very famous, popular and traditional dish in Kerala. Mashed jack fruit can use as breakfast, evening special and for dinner. Some people are using this with chicken curry, beef curry, prawn masala and fish curries and some other are using it with different pickle, chutney and curd. But I would like to have it with any non-vegetarian curries so I made with this jackfruit dish. Beef is very tasty non vegetarian item and I used tomato paste to make this special beef curry. It is very spicy beef curry and it is an excellent combination with mashed jackfruit. I would like to have it as dinner because its taste will increase at that time. Mashed jackfruit is very tasty item and if we use it with spicy beef curry its taste will increase. To get spicier I used both dried red chilli and pepper powder. It is very thick curry and its main flavours are garam masala powder and fennel powder. It is a traditional combination and everyone can try this tasty combination.
