Chakkakkuru Ularthiyathu (Stir Fried Jack fruit Seeds)

Chakkakkuru Ularthiyathu is one of my all time favourite dishes. The dish brings back childhood memories. There were a couple of jack fruit trees in my maternal home. Hence Ammachi, as I call my maternal grandmother, used to prepare this dish often. The day this dish was prepared, it was a known fact that my trips to the kitchen would be more. With every trip, I would scoop a spoonful and eat it. Thankfully my grandmother was aware of it and always cooked accordingly 🙂 Such a glutton I was. 😛

I learnt this recipe from my grandmother.This recipe yields approximately 3-4 servings.
