  • Place the jackfruit seeds in a pan, add enough water into the pan to cover the jackfruit seeds.
    1½ cup Jackfruit Seed
  • Place the pan over high heat and bring to a boil. Lower heat to medium and simmer for 25-30 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Let the jackfruit seeds cool, and when they are cool enough to handle, pat them dry and slowly peel off the outer white covering. Peeling the seeds is a bit tedious, but, worth it.
  • Then, add the olive oil to a pan and add the onion to it. Let onion saute for about 10 minutes, stirring often.

While this is an easy curry to make, boiling and peeling the jackfruit seeds is a bit of a labor intensive process.
But, boiled jackfruit seeds are so buttery and delicious. They can be enjoyed plain or you can use them in a curry like this one.
