We can make many dishes with Tender Jackfruit. I made many dishes with this by using South Indians and North Indians. But mainly Jackfruit and Tender Jackfruit are used by Keralites. Today I made spicy less Tender Jackfruit stir fry. This is one healthy dish because it contains Tender Jackfruit. I like Jackfruit dishes very much so I made it today. It is an excellent combination with hot plain Rice with Sambar. This is completely traditional dish so it will be very useful those who likes traditional dishes. This is Tender Jackfruit season so we can make many dishes with this season. Here I used Black Pepper Powder and White Pepper Powder as spices. Grated Coconut, Cumin Seeds and Pepper Powder are the good combination. We can make it with very easily at home. I used limited ingredients to make this stir fry. I love this dish very much so I am really happy to share this to all.
