Slit each jackfruit and remove the seeds of jackfruit as shown in the picture below.

Remove the outer skin of jackfruit and chop it into small pieces as shown in the picture below. Put this in a vessel containing water, wash them properly and keep them aside.

Put black gram seeds, mustard seeds and oil in a thick bottomed vessel/pan. Once it starts spluttering, add curry leaves and chopped jackfruit. Add turmeric powder, chilly powder, salt, around 2 cups of water and cook them well by covering a lid. Stir it once in every 2-3 mins.
