Kerala Chakkakuru Manga Curry | Jackfruit Mango Curry

Jackfruit Seeds and Sour Mango cooked in  spicy coconut Gravy.

This tempting kerala style chakkukkuru manga curry made me completely drool for it.  And I found  new way to utilize the seeds in making curry rather than adding in sambhar. Yes everytime my mom use to add the seeds in sambar.

I got this recipe from one of my neighborhood friend. She said chakkakuru, manga with Murukka curry is a seasonal dish is kerala and most popular in  keralite home. Here I didn't use Drumstick, you can use as per preference. This is a delectable combination in spicy coconut curry. The spicy curry serves as a good accompaniment with rice or roti.
