Kadge Chakko


When I had blogged about "Kirla Chakko", Purnima had mentioned about "Kadge Chakko". For some reason, I couldn't remember eating it in my grandma's kitchen. So I asked my mom who shared this delicacy. The recipe is exactly similar to Kirla chakko.

Kadge Chakko
Jackfruit Curry
Ingredients
1 can of raw jackfruit, chopped to make about 2 cups
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 sprig curry leaves, torn
1/2 cup water


Salt to taste
1 tbsp jaggery


Grind to a coarse paste
3/4 cup fresh coconut
5 byadgi chilies *
1 tbsp coriander seeds *
1/8 tsp fenugreek seeds *
1 tsp urad daal *
1 1/2 tsp tamarind pulp
(The ingredients with * must be roasted before grinding with coconut and tamarind)


Tempering
1 tsp coconut oil
1 curry leaves, torn
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/4 tsp asafoetida


Method
1. Add jackfruit pieces, curry leaves, turmeric powder and water in a saucepan. Bring to boil. Switch the gas to low and let it cook till soft. Add more water if needed.
2. Grind the masala by roasting the spices and chilies. Make a coarse paste adding a little water as needed.
3. Add the ground masala to the cooked jackfruit mixture.
4. Add salt and jaggery.
5. Let the mixture cook on a low flame till it becomes dry.
6. Heat a small saucepan. Add all the ingredients for tempering.
7. Add the sizzling oil to the curry. Switch off the gas and cover with the lid immediately.


Note -
1. Since we are not using fresh jackfruit, soak the canned jackfruit for 3-4 hours before using  to remove the "can" taste of the veggies.
2. Do not use ripe jackfruit for this recipe.
3. This curry should have a dry consistency. So do not add too much water.
