When we went to shopping last week in Mustafa, we saw this palakottai – Jackfruit seeds. Vj wanted me to buy this. I have never cooked before but mom and MIL does. I then added it to sambar one day. One day I made this kootu. Still its there. I should roast it and eat or add it to kuzhambu. When I was kid, early mornings in winter, I used to boil water for bath in the backyard with all the coconut tree parts that was in our back yard. It used to be very interesting for me to everyday light up fire with all those things and boil water. My mom used to say we can throw in the jackfruit seeds in that burnt coal and you get a delicious smoky flavoured snack. I used to love it too. I have did the same with sweet potato and it tasted yumm. But I think Jackfruit seeds can be roasted in kadai also and eaten as such. I have to yet try that. This kootu is very simple and basic recipe with palakottai, yet I wanted to post it in my blog.
