1 cup pineapple/ananas, roughly chopped
1 cup raw jackfruit, roughly chopped
1/2 cup ripe mango, roughly chopped

1/4 cup coconut
3/4 tsp mustard seeds, roasted
4-5 byadgi chilies, roasted
1/2 tsp turmeric powder

2 tsp oil
1/4 tsp mustard seeds

1. Heat oil. add mustard seeds. As they splutter, add all the fruits. Add 2 tbsp water. Cover with a lid on top. Let it cook. It won't take too much time.
2. Add ground coconut paste and 1/4 cup water.
3. Add salt and jaggery. Adjust the consistency as desired.
4. Let it simmer.

Note -
1. Some people add ripe jackfruit instead of raw. However, I prefer the taste of the raw jackfruit. 2. Instead of chopped mango, whole raivaL mangoes are added.
