Idi Chakkai Thoran/Raw Jackfruit Curry

Idi Chakkai Thoran is very popular and speciality of Kerala, India. Its prepared with Raw Jackfruit and coconut oil. Its called Idi Chakkai since Idi is called mashing in Tamil and Malayalam and Chakkai is Raw Jackfruit thus came the name. This is usually prepared for marraige in Kerala. When we saw this in Little India just got it.
Here follows the recipe.

Ingredients
Chakkai/Raw Jackfruit - 1no
Coconut oil - 1/4 cup
Fresh Grated Coconut - 2 cups
Green Chilli - 4 nos (As per your taste)
Turmeric/Manja Podi - 1/4 tspn
Mustard /Kadag - 1/4 tspn
Salt

Preparation Method
Remove skin of the raw jack fruit and cut into big chunks/pieces.
You can cook in Kadai or Pressure cook it to 1 whistle with little water, turmeric and 1 tspn coconut oil.
Grind grated coconut and green chilli in mixie to 1 to 2 whips.
In a thick bottom kadai/wok put oil, mustard wait till it splutters.
Now add the cooked raw jackfruit and mash it with potato masher into fine pieces.
Add salt and coconut oil.
Finally add grinded mixture of coconut and green chilli. Cook for sometime.
Couple of extra spoons of coconut oil gives the thoran more flavour and aroma.


Idi Chakkai Thoran is ready to serve and is a perfect sidedish for any sambar rice.
